Paul Burgess

Paul met Graham Gouldman in the early days of 10cc when recording at Strawberry Paul BurgessStudios and when they planned to start touring asked him to join as an auxillary member, playing drums, percussion and keyboards for what was to become a ten year period. He started recording with them in 1976.

In 1982, he toured throughout America and Canada with Jethro Tull and in 1983 played his final tour with 10cc around the U.K. The ’80s became a tour fest with Camel in (’83/’84), Elkie Brooks (’85), Joan Armatrading (’86), Alvin Stardust (’87), Gloria Gaynor (’88) and Icicle Works (’89).

1990 saw the beginning of a five-year relationship with former Fairport Convention guitarist Jerry Donahue which reached a peak with the Hellecasters. Since then Paul has been working with legendary R&B singer Chris Farlowe, and following a reunion in ’99, with Graham and Rick, is pleased to be keeping the music of 10cc alive.
