Skweeze Me Pleeze Me by Slade was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, June 30, 1973 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Lea originally had the idea for the chorus of "Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me" after visiting the band's regular pub, The Trumpet in Bilston, where he saw local pianist Reg Kierle performing there. During the release of the song, drummer Don Powell was involved in a near-fatal car crash in July, briefly throwing the band's existence into doubt. Despite his critical condition, Powell was able to make a recovery and the band entered the studio to record material for their next album Old New Borrowed and Blue later in the year.
