What an iconic pairing this would be!

'The One And Only' star Chesney Hawkes says he would love Adele to record one of his tunes.

He has confessed he has written "some songs" for the 'Go Easy On Me' singer.

Chesney keeps busy writing songs for other artists and it's a dream of his for Adele to record one of them.

He told the Metro: "Adele, if you're listening, I've got some songs for you!"

Hawkes now lives a glamorous life in LA, and told the paper about some of the experiences he's had there.

He said: "In New York I did CBGBs and all those places Blondie, Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground had done.

"It was the same in LA - I did Whisky A Go Go, The Viper Room and The Rainbow. We would bump into people like Lemmy from Motorhead, who came to a gig."

He always made sure to visit Lemmy whenever he was in town.

He added: "He literally lived at this one table at The Rainbow. I used to do a pilgrimage to see Lemmy every time I came to LA.

"There were always Jagermeisters. It's not the same without him there now."

He also admitted moving to LA after being a "huge f****** pop star" was a shock.

It was apparently a very different life.

He explained: "It was humbling. You've got to remember that four years before, I was a huge f****** pop star.

"Then there I was in New York and LA, four of us in a one-bedroom place. Our equipment was s***. The van that we had would break down all the time.

"I remember pushing it. There was a lot of drinking going on. I did a gig in drag."

It all worked out in the end though and he has made a continued success writing songs for others, and the royalties from his hit song.
