Whatever Happened to Bruce Foxton?

April 9, 2014

I wish I’d been in the car to swimming yesterday. We’re in the second week of the new contract with the new cab company and I have to say, I’m really impressed. All the drivers are going out of their way to click with Steven. None more so than Mack, yesterday’s driver.

Despite his love of music, Steven doesn’t normally like music in a car and will ask the driver to turn the radio off. However, yesterday as he sat down, “Speak Like A Child” was playing.

“Mack – it was Style Council’s first song of Speak Like A Child”.

Mack, who obviously knows his stuff replied:

“You know Paul Weller then Steve?”

“Yes. The Jam are all gone. We’ve got the Style Council now”.

They sang for a bit and then Mack said:

“So The Jam have all gone then Steve. I wonder whatever happened to Bruce Foxton?”

“Bruce Foxton’s gone to a new work in a pub. And Rick Buckler’s a lollipop man now”.

Which may, of course, be true……
