The other half of Dave



The other half of Dave

Chas, from 'Chas & Dave' was born here and Rockney was born

Location: Sterling Way, Edmonton, London, N18 1QX

Description: Chas Hodges is the piano and guitar playing half, and lead vocalist, of the English musical duo, 'Chas & Dave'.

Before founding Chas 'n Dave, Chas had worked with the legendary producer Joe Meek, as a session musician, backing Jerry Lee Lewis, played with Mike Berry as the Outlaws (UK band) along with Ritchie Blackmore, and also the highly respected Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers, which had Mick Burt on drums.

Chas is still famous and popular today among supporters of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, owing to the singles he released while in Chas and Dave with David Peacock, including 'Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur' and 'Ossie's Dream' also known as 'Spurs are on their way to Wembley'.

So why the location - well - this is where this legend was born - 'North Middlesex University Hospital'.

And luckily Chas n Dave, the creators of 'rockney', which mixes 'pub singalong, music-hall humour, boogie-woogie piano and pre-Beatles rock 'n' roll' - still rock on.
