One of my favorite bands. I think I was at this show. Ten Years After were the head liner 10CC!!!!

They were all over the radio in the UK in the mid 70s.

Bassist/Vocalist Graham Gouldman wrote a lot of songs for other artists, including "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul" and "Evil Hearted You" for the Yardbirds and "Bus Stop" for the Hollies. A nice retirement package from the royalties there, hopefully :cool:

I love their Dreadlock Holiday. It just makes me chuckle. I wanted the band to learn it a few years ago but only got blank stares! :lol: The lyrics are hilarious from a white boy point of view!

I was walkin' down the street
Concentratin' on truckin' right
I heard a dark voice beside of me
And I looked round in a state of fright
I saw four faces, one mad
A brother from the gutter
They looked me up and down a bit
And turned to each other
I say
I don't like cricket (Oh no!)
I love it
I don't like cricket (No no!)
I love it
Don't you walk through my words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk through my words
'Cause you ain't heard me out yet
Well he looked down at my silver chain
He said "I'll give you one dollar"
I said you've got to be jokin' man
It was a present from me mother
He said "I like it, I want it
I'll take it off your hands
And you'll be sorry you crossed me
You'd better understand that you're alone
A long way from home
And I say
I don't like reggae (No no!)
I love it (Eh!)
I don't like reggae (No!)
I love it (Eh!)
Don't you cramp me style
Don't you queer me pitch
Don't you walk through my words
'Cause you ain't heard me out yet
I hurried back to the swimming pool
Sinkin' pina colada
I heard a dark voice beside me say
"Would you like something harder?"
She said, "I've got it, you want it
My harvest is the best
And if you try it, you'll like it
And wallow in a Dreadlock Holiday"
And I say
Don't like Jamaica (Oh no!)
I love her (Eh!)
Don't like Jamaica (Oh no!)
I love her (Oh yeah!)
Don't you walk through her words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk through her words
'Cause you ain't heard her out yet
I don't like cricket (Oh no!)
I love it (Dreadlock Holiday)
I don't like reggae (Oh no!)
I love it (Dreadlock Holiday)
Don't like Jamaica (Eh!)
I love her (Dreadlock Holiday)

Not forgetting No Milk Today for Hermans Hermits. Always loved that song.

I've seen 10cc twice but with only Graham Gouldman left from the original line up. Both fantastic shows.
