On the 28th September 1950 the drummer Paul Burgess was born in Manchester, England. He worked mainly for the band 10cc in the seventies. Their biggest hit was „I’m not in Love“ – the single went No. 1 in the UK and No. 2 in the US (1975).


Burgess played with 10cc from 1973 until 1980 and joined again in 1983. In the same year the band called it a day. In 1982 Paul Burgess was a briefly member of Jethro Tull. He replaced Gerry Conway for the „Broadsword and the Beast“ tour from August 1982 until October 1982 (UK and USA).

After that Burgess became a member of Camel until the breakup in 1985 and then he worked as a session musician for different groups (Magna Carta, The Icicle Works). In 1985 he returned to Jethro Tull for the orchestral album „A Classic Case„. And his drumming can also be heard on the CD „Spirit Flying Free“ (1997) by John Carter and longtime Tull guitarist Martin Barre. In 2013 Paul Burgess joined the Midnite Johnny Band.
