9. Depends on whether you're talking about the original comics or the TV series. In the former I think he was called Eric Wimp, in the TV series they 'softened' it to Eric Twinge. I think.

EDIT: Er, but as this is a TV quiz, I guess it's Eric Twinge.

I want to say Charlotte the Harlot and Bruce Dickinson, but I think one of us has got the address wrong...

No.2 was Mr Benn

No.10 - not entirely sure that it was the same group as sang in Rainbow, but at a guess, Rod, Jane & Freddy. I was a big fan.

Not sure how you spell this, but I think his name was Casey Kasem or similar.

I suppose Bod wasn't all that wobbly, really.

It was Rod & Jane but not Freddy but someone else then. Freddy joined later, I think now. No idea who the Third Person was - it was a man though.
