I was gutted when I saw this tie had been drawn because I love Weller. Stanley Road is a great album but his best stuff was with The Jam. The answer is Bob here but this is my favourite Weller song and its a fucking cracker

Bob could well be this tournaments REM or The Smiths and go very very far if the draw goes his way. 

He should 

I wouldn't look at it close to the same as them two going far. Bob is one of the most important figures in the history of music, his impact especially in Africa is arguably bigger than any artist in the 64

Im comparing him with the others in this tournament mate. He's up against the likes of Elvis, Bowie, Elton, Lennon, Gaye, Sinatra..... Its a fucking tough tournament this. For me he should go very far but in the original voting, 11 artists got more nomination

Bob for me as well, if you included his stuff with the Jam I’d go for Weller because I love them, but just solo? Bob pisses it. 
 

I love this Weller solo song though. Good little tune.

Marley. Weller just reminds me of the Ben Sherman Kangol Lambretta parade of wankers that were everywhere during my college days.

It’s Bob and it’s not even close. Which is a shame for Weller because there’s another thread out there with Billy Joel that he would piss all over

Is there much difference between Bob Marley's solo stuff and the stuff with the Wailers?

It's all with the Wailers but it's different Wailers.

Yes

For me you can see a big difference as Bob took more and more control and it changed from the Wailing Wailers to Bob Marley and the Wailers

 

Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston left the band in 1974 just after the release of Catch a Fire and Burnin, this was the same time the music was changing and becoming far more political. Look at the track listing prior to Catch a Fire and after. The Bob that is remembered really is more the line up without Tosh and Bunny and more Carlton and Aston Barrett and the I Threes than the previous band

Paul Weller could bring the Jam, Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Moby Grape, the Jelly Jam Band and Jellyroll Morton and would in no way ever be a match for Bob Marley.

Repped for Redemption Song which is one of my absolute favourites.

Paul Weller was boss with The Jam but Bob Marley by a long way.
