About

Rick Buckler, former drummer of The Jam, shares anecdotes that have shaped his life and influenced his writing in the second of four very special 'in conversation' events held as part of the Louder Than Words Festival, a nationwide literary festival celebrating the craft of music-writing. Rick Buckler's autobiography is the first from a member of The Jam, who some considered were the ultimate Mod band. Rick tells The Jam story from growing up in Woking and meeting fellow members Paul Weller and Bruce Foxton at school, through their formation in 1972 and tells of the band's early years before signing to Polydor records. He provides a year by year account of The Jam's progress whilst describing what it was like being a part of the music industry during the 70s and 80s and some of the characters who he met along the way including the Ramones, John Enwhistle, Sid Vicious, Blondie, Boy George and Paul McCartney. Combo tickets allowing access to both this event and the evening's earlier 'In Conversation' session with  Bob Stanley  are available for £22.40 (including fees). To purchase a combo ticket please call the Royal Albert Hall Box Office on 020 7589 8212.
