Chesney Hawkes chats to Tom about his dad, Len "Chip" Hawkes, introducing him to rock n' roll via his legendary '60s band, The Tremeloes, how he came to have his blockbuster hit, "The One and Only" and to what extent it has defined his career, his collaboration with the late Fountains of Wayne lead singer, Adam Schlesinger, and why going back on the road this year will be bittersweet.
