Avatar 4:27pm Joe B:

@LCBD - that bias is everywhere. people were upset that he broke up the Jam, and there would have been a backlash no matter what he did next because it wasn't the jam. which is unfortunate because songs like Malice and Bitterest Pill are no different from Style Council songs

Avatar 4:34pm Joe B:

he could have still called it the Jam and then people would have ripped him for wanting to play jazz. The punk/new wave crowd was/is no different from classic rock audience in one aspect - they just want to hear the old stuff.

I seem to remember when I was a mod as a teen in the 80's that Paul Weller and Billy Bragg weren't allowed in the US for being too Socialist. Am I misremembering the Reagan era?

John Weller was a true gent when he chucked my friend and I out of the backstage area of a Jam gig in 1982 but asked if we had tickets for the show.

You always wonder how forthcoming a celebrity is really being - but seems a lot less attitude than I might have expected from 'Thuh Modfather' & this stuff...

If Paul Weller can get sober anyone can. Spent a night with him in a Scottish castle in early 2000’s- he was wasted at the piano for hours - ‘‘twas way rad for this Jam evangelical- next morning watching him walk the gardens alone seemingly ruing the previous night’s exploits caused me some concern

Great show and interview! I was at The Jam CBGBs show too and enjoyed chatting w/Mr. Weller (the Dad)! All Mod Cons!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Handy Haversack:

Loved the Trummors! Jack, do you know Tristen? Out of Nashville. I assumed I had heard on Todd's show, but I think it must have been Irwin. One of our favorite albums we have picked up this year. We listen to it a lot.
  5:21pm Jett:

What are your favorite tracks from this new Dylan album?

@ Handy -- oh cool! yes, i love being able to still hear a lot of the birds here too (and of course the cats just LOVE checking them out, hah!)

Hats off to Bob Dylan for calling it like he sees it! Cheers
Avatar 5:23pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Jett...so far this song, "Goodbye Jimmy Reed" and "I Contain Multitudes".
Avatar 5:23pm Woo:

Something about this Dylan tune reminds me of a song from Gilligan's Island Hamlet-a Harold Hecuba production. I love both songs.
