Paul Weller Review And Videos From The Greek Theatre In LA!

Image By: darewreck (instagram)
From The OC Register:

Paul Weller’s Greek Theatre show had only been underway a short time when he arrived at the snappy, new retro-leaning ditty “That Dangerous Age.” The lyrical protagonist goes through a midlife crisis, but this legendary rocker sure didn’t sing it from recent personal experience.

Back home in England, Weller is nearly as popular now at 54 as he was fronting the trailblazing punk/R&B trio the Jam at 24. Headlining large venues and festivals is still the norm there, and all his solo albums have gone Top 10. The strong current one, Sonik Kicks, came out last spring and entered the U.K. charts at No. 1. Noel Gallagher, Blur’s Graham Coxon, the High Llamas’ Sean O’Hagan are among those who assisted in the studio.

Unquestionably, the past few years have seen the Modfather (as Weller is affectionately known) craft some of the most adventurous and compelling music of his lengthy career. Here in America, the singer/guitarist remains a rev…

Paul Weller Performance At The John Varvatos Store In LA!

From Rolling Stone:

There is no bigger music fan in fashion than John Varvatos, who's turned that love into relationships with a number of rock stars, from Chris Cornell and Dave Matthews to Alice Cooper, all of whom have played outside of Varvatos' West Hollywood store. Last night, his newest model, Paul Weller, came in to the WeHo spot to help Varvatos celebrate his 10-year anniversary at the location.

Before the show, Varvatos introduced Weller as one of his biggest influences, both musically and in fashion. In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year Varvatos said, "Paul has always been this super-cool, stylish guy, from the first time I saw him with the Jam in 1977 to today. He's probably one of the best-dressed, best-looking guys in rock & roll."

Perhaps fired up by Varvatos' continuous praise, Weller, who plays L.A.'s Greek Theater this Friday in his last U.S. show in 2012, led his three-piece band through an hourlong set at maximum vo…

One of the most celebrated is Paul Weller's …
