Description

Paul Weller first found fame as a member of "The Jam", the mod-suited threesome that hurtled out of Woking and into the punk maelstrom in 1977. Over the next 20 years Weller would split "The Jam", form "The Style Council", actively campaign for the Labour Party and striking miners, lose both fights and rebuild his fan base and ultimately rediscover his mod roots to become the most important elder statesman (the self-professed "Modfather") of the British pop industry. Along the way Weller gained and lost friends, married, fathered children and divorced, helped his father through illness and bankruptcy, and resurrected a career which long seemed dead. This is the story of the man's life both in and outside of music. Author Steve Mallins has talked to friends, collaborators, enemies and admirers to form this intimate portrait of one of rock's biggest come-back successes.show more
