Modesty Forbids (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
Modesty Forbids is the fifth solo album of Graham's career, and his first since 2012's 'Love And Work'.
With Graham's 10cc tours enjoying ever-increasing success around the world in recent years, in 2018 he was invited by former Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr to join his All Starr Band for tours of Europe and the USA, during which the band played three 10cc songs, elevating Graham's profile yet further.
That relationship continues, with Ringo making a very special guest appearance on Modesty Forbids, playing drums on a song called 'Standing Next To Me'. Graham said, "I write about how I came to be asked to join Ringo's band and about my experience of being on the road with him". Ringo Starr added, "It was such a thrill for me to have Graham in my All Starr Band in 2018, with his great songs and great bass playing and his very British personality! And look what happens - he goes home and writes a great song and then asks me to play drums on it! It was my honour because the track is fab and I want to congratulate him on such a good album too."
The album's eclectic mix of song styles includes swing (something Graham's never tried before), the blues and gospel is something he hopes everybody enjoys as much as he did making the album. Graham said, "I can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it was making Modesty Forbids and to be able to work with so many fine musicians. When listening back to the album I realise that there are two recurring themes. One is about climate change awareness and the other is a call for 'peace and love'. These two subjects may be clichés, but I don't care - as long as we take action on the first and practice the second we'll all be ok."
