Chas Hodges Biography (Wikipedia)

Charles Nicholas "Chas" Hodges (born 28 December 1943) is an English musician and singer, probably best known for being one half, and lead vocalist, of the English musical duo, Chas & Dave.

Before founding Chas & Dave, Hodges had worked with the producer Joe Meek, as a session musician, backing Jerry Lee Lewis & Gene Vincent, and has also played with Mike Berry and 'The Outlaws' along with Ritchie Blackmore, and Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers, which had Mick Burt on drums. He then joined Albert Lee's band Heads Hands & Feet before playing with Dave Peacock and Albert in Black Claw. He also played piano for a short-lived band called The Rockers, which featured Roy Wood, Phil Lynott and John Coghlan. Hodges claims that he learnt piano by watching Jerry Lee Lewis whilst backing him.

Hodges is still famous and popular today among supporters of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club owing to singles he has released as Chas and Dave (with Dave Peacock). These include "Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur", "Hot Shot Tottenham", "When the Year Ends in One", "Spurs Medley" and "Ossie's Dream" also known as "Spurs are on their way to Wembley". In 2009, following the death of his wife Sue, Peacock announced his retirement from performing with Chas & Dave. However, in 2010 the band announced a tour in 2011.
