Happy Birthday Paul Weller.

Pushing the limits has always been the musical philosophy of Waist High favorite Paul Weller.

From his time with The Jam, still for many the most inspirational group of the last thirty years, through to the pop genius of The Style Council, to his ever-evolving solo career, he has always made a point of keeping ahead of the throng.

Now with a new generation of bands inspired by his music and mindset, Paul Weller has, without a doubt, earned his stripes, proven further still by his recent 2006 BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, and nomination for MOJO magazine's Honours List 2006 'Inspiration Award,' which is "presented to an act that has been the catalyst for music fans and fellow musicians alike."
