David Jarvis talks to Andrew Gold about Wax and 10cc
you ever regret not taking up 10cc's invitation to join the band in
1982 when you worked on the Ten out of Ten album?
you hit it off with Graham. How did you get on with Eric?
you often play the U.S. version of Ten Out Of Ten?
you meet new people, do they still recognize you as part
of Wax or do you find they generally have forgotten about your success
with Graham in the 80s?
all the songs that you have written with Graham, which track is your
which track is the best example of the songwriting chemistry between
you and Graham?
which one is the worst (in your humble opinion)?
far as many UK fans are concerned, WAX did not quite achieve the success
that you and Graham deserved. Do you agree with this or not?
The last time that
you and Graham played live together was back in 1997 at The Green Room
at The Café Royal in London when you joined Graham and Rick on stage.
Did you enjoy your short appearance there and how do you feel about playing
small intimate venues such as the Green Room and Ronnie Scott's that obviously
You mentioned in
your last e-mail to me that your new solo album is almost finished so
can you give us any details regarding this new album, i.e. title, release
date, musicians, co-writers?
Are you or Graham
involved in any way on either of your new solo albums?
Did you realize
that "The World In Action” single Don't Break My Heart is
now changing hands in the UK for anything up to £360? What do think about
how these rarities come about considering the single was re-released under
"Common Knowledge” shortly later?
Would you and Graham
ever consider putting together a CDR of all your old demos?
If you could choose,
which musician past or present would you most liked to have worked with?
What would you
be doing now if you hadn't become a musician?
What would be your
first act as World Leader?
do you admire most and why?
Looking back on
all the songs you have written, do you ever wish that you'd done them
Is there any one
song that was composed by another artist that you wish you'd written?
What kind of music
do you listen to when you are not actually making it?
What do you do
for relaxation when you are not in the studio?
