Happy Birthday, Paul Weller...

A big happy 55th to Paul Weller. As I was born in 1964, I wasn't around for the original Mod movement. It wasn't until the late 1970's, that I was introduced to Mods via the Mod Revival. My chief introduction to that world was the music of one of my top 3 favorite bands of all time, The Jam. I became a huge fan of Paul and his music, and have gone right along with him on his musical journey from the Jam, to the Style Council, to his solo work. I have seen him in concert twice, both in the more recent years of his solo tours. Once at The Greek (an outdoor venue in Griffith Park in Los Angeles), and at the Wiltern Theater (also in Los Angeles). Both are among my most memorable concerts.
