Chas Hodges 1943–2018

The piano-playing half of rockney duo Chas & Dave has died at the age of 74


Vintage Rock was saddened to hear of the passing of Charles Nicholas “Chas” Hodges on 22 September. It was only in Vintage Rock 36 that we had spoken to Chas, hopefully highlighting a unique career in rock’n’roll that was often underappreciated or simply unknown to many music fans.

Chas & Dave, his enduring partnership with bassist and co-vocalist Dave Peacock, was of course Hodges’ ticket to fame in the 70s and 80s: but his career stretched back to the early 60s as a consummate musician, and a session player who rubbed shoulders with the best. He played with Heads Hands & Feet, Cliff Bennett, alongside Bill Haley, and many others.
