Recently reconciled following family bereavements, Paul Weller's single 'Fast Car/Slow Traffic' from his most recent album, also featured Bruce on bass. There were also incredible scenes when Bruce recentlyappeared 'live' alongside Paul - for the first time in 28 years - to perform The Jam classics 'The Eton Rifles' and 'The Butterfly Collector' as well as 'Fast Car/Slow Traffic' at the second of Weller's five night residency at the Albert Hall. Subsequently, the two worked together on the sleeve notes of the 30th Anniversary release of 'Sound Affects' by The Jam.
PAUL WELER now appears as one of two Very Special Guests on the new FOXTON album, 'Back In The Room', along with Stax and Blues Brothers legend, STEVE CROPPER. The albu contains a total of 12 tracks, all written by Bruce Foxton and From The Jam vocalist/guitarist, Russell Hastings
