Interview With Bruce Foxton

Published Date: 04 August 2009
By Duncan Seaman
Bruce Foxton is heading down memory lane.

The former bass player with one of Britain's best-loved bands, The Jam, is en route to West Yorkshire next week to perform a string of classics from the '70s and '80s.

"Holmfirth – isn't that where they made Last of the Summer Wine?" asks the 53-year-old star. "I played there in the past with Stiff Little Fingers...It's got a full-size snooker table in the dressing-room. I'd better get practising."

Bruce is returning to this corner of the England next month with his latest band, From The Jam. A homage to his past, the band also features one-time Jam drummer Rick Buckler and singer and guitarist Russell Hastings, a longtime Jam fan, formerly of the mod band Maximum High.

The gig is part of a short summer summer tour that marks the band's return to the live arena after a difficult few months for Bruce.

"Personally it's been a tough start to the yea…

Paul Weller's Son, Natt Gives A Candid Taxi Interview

Where else to meet the musician son of the agelessly groovy Modfather but at London’s trendy Met Bar? And there’s more than a hint of moody Mod style about the Japanese parka that Paul Weller’s eldest child Natt has slung over his Vivienne Westwood top.

Yet there all similarity ends, for singer-guitarist Natt has inherited the exotic beauty of his mother – former Wham! and Style Council backing singer Dee C Lee – rather than the famously angular features of his father.

‘Everybody always goes, “Luckily he took after his mum…”’ laughs Natt, whose mother is from France and St Lucia and whose great-great grandma was Japanese. Hence Natt’s fascination for Japan, where he moved in 2006 for a year to learn the language.

To pay for his studies, he modelled and deejayed, ‘I felt like an outsized monster,’ confides Natt, 21, a 6ft 1in beanpole. He returned a fan of Japan’s popular culture – from manga cartoons to punk-goth music – and with a different spelling to his name, which now features two ‘…

Paul Weller & Bruce Foxton Friends Again

The Jam's bassist Bruce Foxton has revealed that he and Paul Weller are on speaking terms again.

Foxton is currently plays bass with From The Jam, performing songs by The Jam alongside Weller soundalike Russell Hastings and former Jam drummer Rick Buckler.

In June 2008, Weller spoke of his dissatisfaction for From The Jam, saying the 'reunion' band was like a "cabaret". The Modfather originally split The Jam in 1982, when they were one of Britain's biggest bands.

However, Foxton has admitted that he and Weller are now on speaking terms – though discussing reforming The Jam is off-limits.

"I don't even discuss it with him, I know the answer," Foxton told Yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk, adding that Weller "doesn't even comment on what I'm doing".

Foxton continued by saying that Weller's friendship means more than music.

"He has been very kind over the last few years - that's more important to me," he explained.
