Chris Difford was the lyricist from classic pop band Squeeze. Alongside Glenn Tilbrook, he wrote hit songs such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction and Pulling Mussels (From The Shell) and many, many more. Together they formed a songwriting partnership which has been compared to Lennon and McCartney. With Chris Difford’s unique storytelling gift, and Tilbrook’s pop sensibility, their music continues to inspire musicians and music fans to this day. We’re delighted Chris will be joining us at The Bus Driver’s Prayer.
Here’s Chris back in the day singing Cool for Cats on TOTP!
