Bursting on to the music scene in the 70s, Chas 'n' Dave released songs that spoke about life in London; they wanted to be themselves and sing about things they knew about in their own voices. Some people perceived it as a gimmick but thirty-odd years later, thousands flocked across the fields of Glastonbury to witness an unforgettable gig. Some gimmick. With hits like 'Gertcha', 'Rabbit', 'The Sideboard Song', 'Margate' and the achingly beautiful 'No Pleasin' You', they created a sound that was uniquely Chas and Dave - and rockin' to boot. What most people don't know is that both Chas and Dave had previous careers: Dave playing in London country bands, touring as a session musician and touring America with Mick Greenwood; Chas touring as bass player to Jerry Lee Lewis (who helped Chas learn piano) and Gene Vincent. Chas was even a band member of the Beatles for one brief moment in time. Chas' hilarious account of what he got up to before he knew Dave is a must-read for every fan. If you've ever wondered what makes the legendary duo tick (or which one is bloody which!) then this is the book for you!
