I know... I can't believe it either! Kenny Wheeler has joined The Paul Weller Fan Podcast. What an absolute honour. A man who has been part of the Weller team for over 40 years now. First credited on album sleeve notes with The Jam on the Sound Affects LP (Special thanks to Ken for playing pool) - Kenny has been a constant with Paul from 1978 with The Jam to The Style Council and Weller solo - moving to credits as Tour Manager & PA by Heavy Soul and continuing through to now with 2021's Fat Pop. Kenny has never been interviewed by anyone before - so it's a real honour to be able to feature some of his stories on this podcast series. We chat about the tours, the important of the fans, memorable gigs, travelling the world, the bands, the music business, friendships made, and of course - Paul and John Weller.
