Paul Weller

Paul Weller hasn't achieved the same level of fame in the U.S. as he has throughout the rest of the world, but still remains a major force in rock 'n' roll. Now a revered elder statesman in Britain, Weller is the musical equivalent of Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. A rabid student of rock and soul, he transformed a love of 1960s British Invasion and American R&B into highly personal music that pays homage to his influences while transforming them at the same time.

He has remained a national rather than an international star, and much of his songwriting is rooted in British culture. He is also the principal figure of the 1970s and 80s mod revival and is often referred to as the Modfather.
