“No Tears To Cry” (Live On Kimmel) (Video)

     

    Paul Weller’s latest album, Wake Up the Nation, went some way to appeasing fans looking for a reunion of the Jam (which is about as likely as the Smiths reforming) by recruiting Bruce Foxton to play on a few songs. Weller appeared, sans Foxton, on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night (Nov. 4), where he performed “No Tears To Cry.” This is the kind of rootsy, boorishly authentic Faces-influenced rock Weller has been pedaling since he began his solo venture in the early ‘90s, although he’s still a mod at heart—just check out that familiar symbol behind him during this performance.
