Why is Paul Weller so infrequently mentioned around here - given his enduring and wide range of varied and cool stuff ?

James Warner says:
His reputation isn't helped by having two hits which shamelessly rip off other artists' riffs:

Start (The Jam) - Taxman (The Beatles)
The Changingman (Weller) - 10538 Overture (ELO)

Whenever I've seen him being interviewed he doesn't seem to be much of a laff. More dour and intense. He does'nt come across as particularly likeable.

The history of good music isn't also the history of nice people (Anthony Braxton)

And the ones who are nice are not terribly interesting, let's be honest.

Think you're wrong there. There are loads of talented people who are nice and interesting. Some may be off-kilter or 'weird' but they're still pleasant. You don't need to be a see-you-next-tuesday to be interesting. If anything, the interminably obnoxious, @rsey and aggressive are mostly very boring.

Liam gallagher for instance. I mean would you want to spend more than (or even as much as) 0.000000000000001 microseconds in his company

He's one of those acts that maybe has achieved some level of kudos and commercial success in the UK but isnt of much interest to the rest of the planet.

Yes I would Peter. When he's away from a microphone. I find him funny. I love his off stage humour

Paul Weller screams of bacon n' eggs.I think he should retire.He is irrelevant now.Like The Jam[who doesn't?]liked Long Hot Summer[that one with the credibility destroying homoerotic video],Wild Wood cool...Uh Huh Oh Yeah one of the best singles EVER.....then its all burger and chips lad rock,mullets,geezer cuddles with the mono browed Gallaghers hanging out with Ocean Colour Scene.Weird...at one point Weller was more dated in the present then in the past.
I remember distinctly him saying something like "Bowie's rubbish innit...guv...pass us a benson and a stella"......this angered me.Bowie was,is GOD.
Weller definetly has a place but as stated he got way too geezer for my likings.

I wouldn't class Bowie as particularly relevant mind.

So what happened then?

Martin says:
He got old, scrawny, grey, wrinkled and even less vocally adept.

i liked his first 4 solo albums self titled paul weller(quite jazzy) through to heavy soul but started to lose interest with heliocentric,just couldn`t get into it,i think he started churning his albums out too quickly and the material on them just wasn`t that good for me

bit worried about Bowie - he's retired ? hope he is well - agreed a huge talent..after all he introduced the mighty Comus to the world...Song To Comus - The Complete Collection
