Paul Weller To Play Bilbao BBK Festival In Spain!

The Modfather himself Paul Weller is amongst the latest acts to be confirmed to play Bilbao BBK.

Set in the Spanish countryside just a few miles from the coast, Bilbao BBK is one of Europe's most spectacular festivals. Rising in popularity with each passing year, this summer's event looks to be one of the finest yet.

With a number of star names already confirmed the organisers of Bilbao BBK have added more acts to the line up. The Spanish festival is set to boast a performance from Paul Weller, one of the most acclaimed songwriters in Britain.

Due to return with his outspoken new album 'Wake The Nation' later this year, the singer is on ferocious form following his BRIT Award triumph last year. Touring the nation, Paul Weller is now set to turn his sights on Bilbao BBK.

Joining him will be a double pairing of American rock royalty. Reformed metal icons Faith No More are set to play a set at the event, marking their return to a European festival after a gap of almost a decade.

Accompanying them will be Seattle legends Alice In Chains, celebrating the release of their new album. The two acts will complete a trio of American rock legends, with Pearl Jam already confirmed for the Spanish event.

Elsewhere on the bill fans can bask in the demented glory of Rammstein, Gogol Bordello, Slayer and many more.

Bilbao BBK is due to take place between July 8th - 10th.

John Weller Obituary From The Independent...

For thirty years, John Weller managed the career of his son Paul, through the salad days and success of The Jam in the Seventies and early Eighties, the ups and downs of The Style Council and Paul’s re-emergence as a solo artist in the Nineties. Theirs was a unique father-son relationship in the music industry, built on John’s unwavering belief in Paul’s talent and shared values like hard work and pragmatism.

John could be blunt, and once refused to have lunch in a record company’s executive dining room, remarking to the managing director: “I didn’t come here to eat, I came to do business.” But his bark was worse than his bite.

John’s success was all the more remarkable since he started in his forties after years working in factories, on building sites and driving a taxi. When The Jam signed to Polydor in February 1977, for a £6,000 advance and a six per cent royalty rate, John admitted he didn’t have a bank account and asked for cash instead of a cheque.

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 ‘…
