Here's Chas, singing and playing with our own Bev and Roy, on late-night music and comedy show OTT in 1983.
It's so sad to lose Chas. I remember seeing this video on YouTube a few years ago and believed it to be evidence of a parallel universe containing an alternative version of ELO - with Roy, Bev, Jeff-beard-alike Chas and Phil Lynott (who everyone would pick to be in their dream band line-up surely!)
I saw Chas attending a Procol Harum concert in 2014, he looked easy going and very smart when out-on-the-town.
Chas and Dave's Xmas Knees - Up is worth a watch, it's bound to be on this Christmas. Probably on Channel 5.
I remember watching the OTT show at the time it went out (knowing that Bev and Roy were on) although not knowing what they would be singing, two of the songs were ROB and Johnny Be Good which are part of ELO folklore. Chas has been mentioned on this forum before in the Jeff Lynne looky likey thread!

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
