He's a stubborn bugger as well. His career hit the doldrums in the early 90s and he was playing very small clubs. He could have cleaned up with The Jam back then but resisted.
Maybe re. cleaning up. The nostalgia payday circuit wasn't as lucrative as it is now, but the timing would have been good, with the dominance of Britpop.
No mate this is pre Britpop. Weller did brilliantly during the mid 90s Britpop era with band's like Oasis etc citing his influence. The early 90s - 90-94 were tougher for Weller.

You're right—for no good reason I thought of Britpop starting in 1990. Brain glitch.

Definitely bound to be more bands. What I'm saying is Weller has no need to retread former glories. Sure if he reformed The Jam they would make a lot of money. I don't think he's friends with Rick Buckler though so that wouldn't help. Weller makes plenty from his own solo career and still plays some Jam tunes live. It's not like many others who have reformed to pay off mortgages and kids college fees etc. I don't blame any old band from reforming and making money as it makes good financial sense. If Paul Weller wasn't making money from his very successful solo career where his shows sell out etc then maybe the lure would be different.
Heh, I'm suggesting he's idealistic; you're saying he's just happily loaded. You're so cynical. ;)

Wasn't short of money though mate.
True mate. I've heard he has struggled financially recently though, he sold the publishing for his Jam stuff apparently. I think that's the reason they keep popping up in adverts recently. He has about 34 kids to support, maybe that's why he's skint.
That would explain the 34 different Jam greatest hits comps. :lol:

I think he's got 7 kids at last count.

I noticed Snap! just got a vinyl reissue.

Pretty interesting and because it comes from Lewisohn it feels pretty legit. Makes you wonder where they would have gone next if they had - in fact - made another record.

Paul: "I thought until this album that George’s songs weren’t that good."
George: "That’s a matter of taste. All down the line, people have liked my songs.”

Hello,

One thing I've learned here is if you can't keep up, keep out.

Ringo's *20th* album is coming. Pity the poor completist.

You have to put safety pins on the strings to get that sweet sitar twang.

Hello,

I feel so ashamed after wasting all that money on an alto ukulele.

You and me both, brother, you and me both.

(Funny enough, despite the friction between them, both Paul and George bonded over their fondness/obsession with ukuleles. Like, George travelled with a bunch of different ones.)

Listening to the 2018 remaster of the White Album right now. It may be a rambling mess as an album, but it is so, so, so, so fucking good. Shitty as the world is and life can be, we're still lucky enough to have had the Beatles.
