    68. Chris Difford - Squeeze

    68. Chris Difford - Squeeze

    Squeeze enjoyed huge success in the UK from the end of the 70's and in North America from the 80s onwards. The songwriting team of Glenn Tilbrook and today's guest Chris Difford were labelled as heirs to Lennon and McCartney in the early days and have collaborated for decades on so many big hit singles and albums. They also played a set on the first ever MTV Unplugged too!

    Chris Difford joins me in a quick chat to talk about their early beginnings, their hits, and his time with Elvis Costello and Elton John among other things.

    Chris will be performing at the Cornbury Festival which is on between the 8th and 10th of July. For more information visit www.cornburyfestival.com

Fab!! Do NOT miss!!

The VRP is the best rock music podcast you’ll ever hear. The roster of guests that Paul has interviewed is extremely eclectic and covers the whole gamut of styles and genres that have developed since modern rock music took off in the 60s, including many, many hall-of-fame inductees and influential musicians and singers. I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough! If you decide to subscribe, do go back to the beginning and work your way through the early episodes, for some real gems. If, like me, you love hearing stories about life in a band, life on-the-road, and how songs and collaborations came about, you’ll not be disappointed. Enjoy!!

Excellent podcast

I’ve never really been a podcast person to be honest, but these are really good. So much information, insights and chat that has made lockdown just a little bit easier. Great alternative to listen to in the car to help the journey pass quicker.
