English singer-songwriter Paul Weller had an early mid-life crisis. ‘The Jam’ singer and guitarist did have it in his mid thirties. The fifty three year old had married twenty five year old Hannah Andrews last year aughs off suggestions his latest single,
‘That Dangerous Age’, is about his own circumstance, because he claims he’s already been through it all when he was younger
”’That Dangerous Age’ is a character study about a guy who’s in mid-life, who’s got a good job and is dissatisfied and regrets all the things he’s never done.
”But it’s certainly not about me. I had my mid-life crisis when I was in my thirties.”
”I suppose the song’s theme is born out of when me and Hannah first got together. Because of our age difference, people really took an interest in it, saying I must be having a mid-life crisis. But we just fell in love and that’s it.” Paul does admit that age to him does not factor into his life bust music does.
”I’m of the opinion, once you’ve been touched by music then age doesn’t matter. What are you supposed to do, put away your records and clothes when you get to a certain age?
”My mum is 71 and she still listens to the records she’s always listened to.”
Paul’s latest album ‘Sonik Kicks’ is out now
