Paul Weller Featured In December Issue Of Uncut!

“When I was 18, I thought it’d all be over by the time I was 21,” Paul Weller tells us this month, looking back on a career that now spans more than 30 years. “At 18, 25 seemed like a lifetime away,” he adds. “Then before you know it, you’re 30. Then you’re 40. And all of a sudden, you’re 50.”

If Weller at 50 is somewhat flabbergasted, how, you have to wonder, does Leonard Cohen feel at 74? As he prepares for a second leg of sold-out UK dates on what has become one of the most triumphant comebacks ever, you would have to say he seems in rude health and wit. In our second major feature this month, the legendary singer-songwriter talks about going back on the road for the first time in nearly 20 years and why for him, it was ‘now or never’, while key members of his touring entourage tell us how the tour came together and share their memories of some of its highlights so far.

Paul Weller Interview With The Sunday Mirror!

Exclusive:Paul Weller may have turned 50, but he says he won't rest on his laurels!

By Gavin Martin 24/10/2008


As his female string section file into a West London rehearsal room, Paul Weller sits on a wall outside blinking in the sunshine, sipping tea and smoking Benson & Hedges.

In May, the Britrock legend turned 50 having just delivered the greatest, most surprising, album of his career.

Featuring collaborations with Robert Wyatt and Noel Gallagher, 22 Dreams is a captivating 2CD set.

It covers everything from the Modish punk rock Weller first found fame with in The Jam, the jazzy adventures he undertook in The Style Council, as well as forging previously unchartered adventures in avant garde, krautrock and nu-folk territory.

It's a record full of ambition and adventure - decidedly not the work of a man settling down for a quiet easy-going middle age.

"You can't really plan for those things, but I did have big ambitions for it starting out and they developed as it wen…

Paul Weller Comments On Noel Gallagher's Assault In Toronto!

Weller: I Saw Noel Stage Attack!

By CHRIS BEANLAND
The Sun

PAUL WELLER is a man who's been in the right place at the right time throughout his career.

And that was true when he saw OASIS on the night NOEL GALLAGHER was shoved over by a stage invader.

He said: "I was standing right by the side of the stage and it was so quick I didn't even see it happen - but I saw the commotion afterwards."

Noel was assaulted and pushed into a monitor by a crazed Canadian at the gig at V Festival in Toronto on September 7.

But such was the speed of events that the full scale of what went on only became apparent afterwards.

A shocked Paul confessed: "I didn't see the geezer come out - it was that quick! I didn't know what had happened until straight after."

But despite the assault, Weller reckons that Oasis played one of the best shows of their lives that evening.

He said: "They still played an incredible gig that night. That was one of the best times I've ever seen t…
