Desperately Seeking Paul : Paul Weller Fan Podcast

EP66 - David Lines -The Modfather - My Life with Paul Weller - ”Got a pen in my pocket, does it make me a writer? Putting on gloves don‘t make me a fighter…”

November 9, 2021

Episode 66 hears from the fabulous David Lines - writer and creator of the brilliant book - Modfather - My Life with Paul Weller

When David first heard This is the Modern World by The Jam, it sparked off a love affair that continues to this day.

Paul Weller became the blueprint for David's life, and he followed his music and his style with the fervour of a truly devoted fan - to the bemusement of his long-suffering family.

In this episode, we hear stories behind the book's creation, including the Weller quote on the cover, along with his journey from The Jam to The Style Council to Paul Weller Solo and connections a plenty.
