Paul Weller Sick Of Reuniting Bands
Weller formed The Jam in the 1970s and the band enjoyed a number of hit albums before splitting in 1982. He then moved on to The Style Council, before launching a solo career.
Despite fellow cult rockers the Stone Roses reforming with much success this year (12), Weller admits he is tired of seeing old bands return for a second shot in the limelight.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "It drives me potty to be honest and I am sick of seeing it. It is big business at the moment and I find it really disappointing and I think all the time that is spent on bands reforming and nostalgia.
"What about the new bands, or young bands, coming in which don't get a look in? I don't know what the reason is. Why is it so prevalent? Is it because people stick to what they know or what they are comfortable or safe with?
"But I think I come from a time when all the artists I grew up with and I loved always used to try and push the boundaries and there doesn't seem so much of that really. It is the same sort of thing, and I find it disappointing."
