Man About Town
Paul Weller was born on 25 May 1958 in Sheerwater, near Woking, Surrey, England, to John and Ann Weller.
He was initially known as John William Weller but later acquired the name Paul.
His father worked as a taxi driver and his mother was a part-time cleaner. In 1963 Weller started his education at Maybury County First School.
His love of music started with The Beatles, then The Who and the Small Faces.
By the time Weller was eleven and moving upto secondary school at Sheerwater County Secondary, music was the biggest part of his life and he began playing the guitar.
In 1972 Weller formed his first group, the Jam, playing bass guitar with his best friends Steve Brookes (lead guitar) and Dave Waller (rhythm guitar).
Weller's father, their manager, began booking the band into local working men's clubs. Joined by Rick Buckler on drums and with Bruce Foxton soon replacing Waller on rhythm guitar, the four-piece band began to forge a local reputation playing a mixture of Beatles covers and a number of compositions written by Weller and Brooks.
In 1976 Brookes left the band and Weller and Foxton decided they would swap guitar roles, with Weller now the lead singer.
In 1982 Beat Surrender was released, but it was The Jam's last single, Paul disbanded the group in December of that year.
Paul then formed The Style Council with Mick Talbot.
After they split up in 1989, Paul went on to pursue a solo career.

The Jam Lyrics
Why are you frightened - can't you see that it's you
That ain't no ghost - it's a reflection of you
Why do you turn away - an' keep it out of sight
Oh - don't live up to your given roles
There's more inside you that you won't show - Ghost Lyrics
Review Just a line to let you know about the past weekend here at The Foresters, on Friday we were treated to a cracking night by The New Age Jam. An awesome sound created by the boys with some cracking covers of not all your usual classics, there was a lot of diversity in their stuff and i would say (as an avid Jam fan) they were just about perfect!
Also a number of solo weller classics such as Broken stones and The Changing man were enough to send my locals home in raptures well done boys and we will see you later in the year.
On first imprecision's the singer is a double of Paul Weller in looks and sounds like him and even sets his guitar sound up just like him......
Review The place went mad when they played all the jam classics and in between the classics they played a few Paul Weller tracks and by looking around, everyone was singing out loud - the audience were having a great time and with the sound and lights, everyone could have been mistaken for the real thing.
Review You guys were fantastic on Saurday at The Ferry, will definately come and see you playing again, also a pleasure chattin with you all outside when you were leavin.
