Graham Gouldman

“Look At Me” Hollies original, the great Allan Clarke presents 10cc co-founder, the wonderful Graham Gouldman with his Lifetime Guitar on behalf of The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation

The Whirlwinds, featuring Graham, covered the Buddy Holly song “Look At Me” in 1964, prior to Graham’s phenomenal success as an artist and songwriter. Listen once again, as Allan and Graham Nash, in the Hollies classic line up, perform the Graham Gouldman hit “Bus Stop”, followed by 10cc and the fantastic “I’m Not In Love”.

The Whirlwinds – comprising Gouldman (vocals, guitar), Maurice Sperling (vocals/drums), Bernard Basso (bass), Stephen Jacobson (guitar, bongos), Malcolm Wagner and Phil Cohen – secured a recording contract with HMV, releasing a recording of the Buddy Holly song “Look at Me”, backed with “Baby Not Like You”, written by Lol Creme, in June 1964.
