"Things were picking up for me. I made three brilliant new friends! Paul, Bruce and Rick. Paul especially knew what it was like to be me. We shared the sense that something wasn't quite right between us and the rest of the world and listening to Paul's take on this made it seem so much easier. I'd found a mate for life, and it didn't matter for a single second that he lived in a piece of twelve inch black vinyl and that we could only meet up when I put him on the music centre in the middle of the room." When David Lines first heard "This is the Modern World" by The Jam, it sparked off a love affair that continues to this day. Much to the bemusement of his long-suffering family, Paul Weller became the blueprint for David's life, and he followed his music and his style with the fervour of a truly devoted fan. At once, disarmingly candid and hilariously funny, this is the story of what it means to have a hero, its pleasures and pitfalls. Illustrating his memoir with landmark songs from The Jam and The Style Council, David maps out the occasionally bizarre events in the life of an obsessive fan and wannabe writer. From Player's Navy Cut to Gitanes, boating blazers to cashmere sweaters, "The Modfather" is about acquiring style, finding substance, and living life with Paul Weller.
