2:10 The 10cc Story - Graham Gouldman pre-rec

The man who took us all on a Dreadlock Holiday back in 1978, 10cc founder Grahame Gouldman is being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Graham will join Ray Davies, Donovan, Mark James and Jim Weatherly at the 45th annual induction ceremony in New York on June 12th.

Graham Gouldman's success started in his teens as a swinging sixties songwriter .... he came up with "For Your Love" for the Yardbirds, a big song and his first hit, back in 1965.

He wrote for the Hollies - "Look Through Any Window" and "Bus Stop," "No Milk Today" for Herman's Hermits, and "Pamela Pamela" for Wayne Fontana.

And within 10cc his songs shone too and they became one of the biggest bands of the 1970s.

Graham's here in New Zealand, playing at the Gibbston Valley Winery in Otago tomorrow.
