Along with Coan and Yomp
Foxton played on his "Wake Up the Nation" album in 2010 and popped up on a couple of gigs too, I believe. They are now friends and I don't think they ever really fell out, after the initial split acrimony anyway.
Buckler probably does think he's a cunt, but really shouldn't because Weller has had to cede money for songwriting credits to him for music he sure as shit didn't write. In fact, I'd go as far as to say Buckler (of all people) ought to be calling him his best mate.
And who really cares what Yomp and Coan think?
Actually I may have that wrong!
Apparently the joint case the other two took out against Weller in 93 was for merchandising etc.
In my mind I can remember Buckler going back for songwriting later but... I can't find it yet .
However.... From this https://www.express.co.uk/expressyourse ... usic-stops
Along with fellow band member Bruce Foxton, Buckler fought a long court case with The Jam’s former lead singer Paul Weller, claiming they were entitled to a greater share of the band’s royalties. The case was eventually settled out of court
That's dated 2008.
