Chas and Dave part company

Bass guitar player Dave Peacock has ended his longstanding partnership with pianist Chas Hodges.

Chas and Dave have enjoyed considerable chart success over the last 35 years with hits such as Snooker Loopy, Rabbit and Ain't No Pleasing You.

However, Peacock has decided not to carry on performing in the duo following the recent death of his wife Sue, who died from lung cancer in July.

"Sue was quite simply a remarkable human being," a statement from the band read.

"Loved by anyone who was lucky enough to know her, she never had a negative point of view on anyone or anything."

Hodges will carry on under the name Chas And His Band and honour their existing live commitments.

Speaking to NME, he revealed that the duo may perform a farewell concert if Dave is willing to do so.

Fans are already campaigning on the internet for the pair to take to the stage one more time.
