From The Jam

Russell Hastings being the only frontman other than Weller to have worked with both Bruce Foxton (former The Jam bassist) and Rick Buckler (former The Jam drummer). His passion and understanding of The Jam has entitled him to be credited by fans and critics alike as the perfect candidate to respectfully and admirably slip into the shoes of former The Jam frontman Paul Weller, with whom he also worked alongside in 2011.
