Before founding Chas and Dave with Peacock and drummer Mick Burt, Hodges worked as a session musician and played for a wide range of artists.

Chas Hodges of legendary music duo Chas and Dave has passed away, it was announced in an official tweet today.

The 74-year-old, who had been battling cancer, died from organ failure in the early hours of Saturday.

Known for their rock and cockney style, Chas and Dave enjoyed the height of their fame in the 1970s and 1980s with hits such as Rabbit and Snooker Loopy.

They featured on adverts for Courage beer and Heinz Baked Beans and also collaborated with Tottenham Hotspur FC on their FA cup final songs.

Chas had had successful treatment for his illness, and it is not been confirmed whether the cancer was connected to the organ failure which occurred.

He returned to performing a year ago, but in August, Chas and Dave were forced to cancel all of their forthcoming gigs on doctor's advice.

The band's debut album One Fing "n" Anuvver was released in 1975 to critical acclaim. "Chas was a great chap our hearts go out to Joan and the rest of your family We have fond memories of you both and feel your sadness".

On 6 February 2017, it was announced that Hodges had been diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus and he started immediate treatment. It was the second time the show was cancelled.
