10cc: The Worst Band In The World?

Alan Betrock, ZigZag, August 1974

WHILE MANY of the veterans on the 1960s musical scene are still around, few are creating much in the way of new musical excitement. There are the ageing glitter idols (Gary Glitter, Bolan et al); stupefying jam bands (Yes, ELP, etc); and those who belong to the old-horses-never-die school (Stones, Lennon, Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel etc). Most of these chart toppers are resting on past laurels, and some (Jethro Tull, Ten Years After, etc) don't even know if they still have laurels to rest on.
