Paul and Sean had the pleasure of meeting the highly affable Paul Canning at his merchandise stall after his delightful support spot at Graham Gouldman’s Heart Full of Songs gig in Manchester last autumn.
He's a talented multi-instrumentalist and singer, prolific songwriter and extremely adaptable singer with 10cc. We are of course dying to know what it’s like to be given the onerous task of being Eric, Lol and Kevin live on stage, and Paul’s stories are riveting! There’s a lovely story behind him crossing paths with the rest of the boys, too. You can hear our ‘10cc envy’ in every second of this pod!
Much of the pod though looks into Paul’s eclectic, interesting and very enjoyable solo catalogue. And he’s popping out albums at a furious rate! All of them are a proper fruit basket of tasty influences (right up our street) and the songwriting’s top-notch. On top of this, Paul has forged a successful sideline in acoustic covers, which have had no small success.
