Never-before-seen photographs taken by Paul Weller's bandmate have revealed the intricacies of life on the road with the British singer-songwriter.
The candid images were captured over ten years by musician and photographer Andy Crofts, who began performing with The Jam vocalist Weller, 62, in 2008 after meeting him two years earlier when he opened for the musician in The On Offs.
After joining Weller's band as a keyboard player, and later a bass guitarist, Crofts 'slowly and unintentionally' gathered a collection of photographs over a decade of fast-paced travel that he now believes 'need to be seen'.
Sir Paul McCartney announces new album McCartney III
Sir Paul McCartney has announced his hotly-anticipated new album, McCartney III, which sees the Beatles icon playing every single instrument. The rocker, 78, whose last album Egypt Station hit the top spot in 2018, has certainly made the most of 'rockdown' by recording the McCartney III - All-New All-Paul Album at his Sussex farm. 2020 marks 50 years since the Hey Jude hitmaker released his self-titled solo album which also featured the legend playing every instrument and writing and recording every song and doing production - just after the Fab Four went their separate ways.
Crofts, who also produced a documentary about Weller titled 'One', captured undated scenes of the singer-songwriter in the studio, in dressing rooms and exploring the cities the pair travelled to on tour between 2008 and now.
The musician, from Northampton, has compiled more than 200 of these images in a book, available from This Day in Music Books for £39.99.
Speaking of the snapshots, he said: 'My photographs are never planned. They are always instant and usually come from us passing somewhere that catches my eye. I think Paul trusts me enough with my camera now to understand how I may see things, and these opportunities usually appear out of nowhere.'
Photo Tips for Dave Rollins and Son’s 1952 Ford F-1 .
Better Readers’ Rides photos with a little information and Dave’s 1952 Ford F-1 could have had a better feature on HOT ROD.Dave Rollins submitted to HOT ROD Readers' Rides writing he and his son built this great-looking 1952 Ford F-1 pickup from the ground up, but that was about it. There was no information about the engine, transmission, or suspension regarding the F-1—or anything else for that matter. But the truck is so nice we thought it'd be a shame to throw the photos in the trash, so instead we'll explain everything Dave did wrong in hopes these pointers help someone else with questions how to submit photos of their ride to appear in HOT ROD Readers' Rides.
