Biography

Richard ‘Rick’ Fenn (born 23 May 1953) is an English guitarist. He is best known for being a member of the band 10cc since 1976. He has also collaborated with Mike Oldfield, Rick Wakeman, The Hollies singer Peter Howarth and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.

Rick’s musical career started in Oxford where he was leader of the school band ‘Bagshot Louie’. The band folded once school was out in 1971 and Rick moved to Cambridge, not as an undergraduate but to attend Cambridge College of Arts & Technology.

After completing an HND business studies course, Rick joined a Cambridge band called Hamilton Gray who moved to Manchester and became the band ‘Gentlemen’. Their debut TV appearance on a show called ‘So It Goes’ (along with the Sex Pistols) resulted in a liaison with Paul Burgess who soon after, recommended him to 10cc which he joined towards the end of 1976 at the launch of the Deceptive Bends album and has been part of the team ever since.

From 1979 he also toured and recorded with Mike Oldfield and with him co-wrote the song “Family Man” which went on to become a big hit for Hall & Oates all over the world and win him an A.S.C.A.P. award for best song in 1984.

In 1985 Rick wrote and recorded his own album “Profiles” with Pink Floyd’s drummer Nick Mason. The single from the album, “Lie for a Lie” sung by David Gilmour and featuring Maggie Reilly was a hit in the U.S.A. Also in the 1980s Fenn and Mason formed Bamboo Music, a company that produced music jingles for corporate clients.
