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.

There’s nothing on any solo Weller record that’d appeal to the jaded, monochromatic palette of D_F.

The most divisive Paul period remains TSC, particularly The Cost of Loving period when he took inspiration from current US soul and delivered an album of smooth RnB.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

I actually laughed out loud at that.

I mean, even if it was true, it just doesn't sound like you.

Ah well.

You're right, I can't cope with the vibrant, colourful, free-wheeling joy and sense of excitement he brings.

Only know The Jam and haven't been privy to his personal peccadillos, but that hairdo is enough to garner a choice epithet or two...

I've heard some of his later solo work but I never liked it enough to own any of it. The Style Council was some dull shit though.

22 Dreams is brilliant. Probably his best solo LP.
