April 2007 Interview  

Rick Buckler talks to SFR about his reunion with former Jam bass man Bruce Foxton and their impending tour, now just a few weeks away.

In this exclusive interview, recorded on 5th April, I read to him some of the comments made on scooter-forums since news of the reunion broke. Rick answers the critisms in his usual style "It may be part of the past, but its also part of my life... I don't think it's something to put in a shoe box in the bottom of a cupboard to be reverred..I mean I'm still alive... I don't see myself as a museum piece". The tour starts on 2nd May in Oxford....

April 2006 Interview  

The Jam's former sticks man Rick Buckler talks to scooter-forums radio in an exclusive interview recorded on 5th April 2006.

In this fascinating and frank interview, Rick tells us what he's been doing since the days of The Jam, what he hopes to achieve with his new band 'The Gift' and why he's as much right to play the Jam's back catalogue as you-know-who... and believe me, we were not about to argue with him.

Rick reveals that while The Gift will be appearing at a scooter rally near you soon, he prefers four wheels to two. But then nobody's perfect and we're certainly glad that he's back on the road.

"Rick Buckler was one of the finest drummers of his generation and his band, The Jam, were arguably the most powerful outfit to emerge from the new wave scene. Throughout the early seventies and early eighties, the Jam would voice the hopes, dreams and aspirations of Britain's post punk youth and sych was the emotional impact of their music that the reverberations can still be heard today with bands like Hard-Fi and the Arctic Monkeys, to name but two, citing the band as a major influence.

After an interim of over twelve years, Buckler inspired by the current crop of upstarts and buoyed by his loyal fan base returned to the stage in 2005 with his band 'The Gift' the name of which is both a nod to the final Jam album yet also signifies that it his own personal gift back to his fan base for their unerring loyalty.

Enlisting the talents of Maximum High musicians Russell Hastings (vocals/guitar) and bassist Dave Moore, Buckler and his band have been playing Jam songs (some receiving their first live airings for over a quarter of a century) which has both enabled the group to establish themselves within the live circuit and also allowed them to hone their skills as a powerful three piece".
