 Bruce Foxton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bruce Foxton is an English rock and roll musician (born 1 September 1955 in Woking, Surrey) who is best remembered as the bass player in punk/new wave bands The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers.
Foxton did, however, take lead vocals on a few tracks, most notably the singles "David Watts" (a cover of a Kinks track) and "News Of The World", which was his own composition.
Foxton did pen a few other tracks, possibly the most notable being "Smithers-Jones", done as a straightforward rock take for the B-side of "When You're Young" and later reworked with strings for the Setting Sons LP.

The writing is appalling and a wasted opportunity for Bruce (foremostly) and Rick (who keeps mum most of the time) to provide a candid, frank and interesting portrayal of the band and of Paul Weller.
Bruce's subsequent reaction sort of goes to show he probably doesn't possess a great deal upstairs, and it illustrates how far out of touch the band were with each other at that point.
Bruce I think (going via the sleeve notes of the Jam at the BBC CD release) has realised that things, ie, the Jam ending when they did, was in hindsight the best thing for all of them, and the band.

 The Jam Biography
Paradoxically, that meant even when their music became more pop than punk, they never abandoned the punk values -- if anything, Weller stuck to the strident independent ethics of 1977 more than any other punk band just by simply refusing to change.
Weller formed the Jam with drummer Rick Buckler, bassist Bruce Foxton, and guitarist Steve Brookes while they were still in school in 1975; Brookes quickly left the band and they remained a trio for the rest of their career.
Bruce Foxton released a solo album, Touch Sensitive, and Rick Buckler played with the Time U.K. ; neither of the efforts were as noteworthy as the Jam biography the two wrote in the early '90s, which contained many vicious attacks on Paul Weller.

 Bruce Foxton - Touch Sensitive gullbuy review
The current NY artist Don Lennon sings like Bruce Foxton on Whatever The Reason, though the music on Whatever The Reason sounds more like TV21 or Comsat Angels than Don Lennon.
Bruce does covers of the Chicago track 25 or 6 to 4 and the Rare Earth track Get Ready.
This record seems to be a case of someone tossing tons of money into the production of a record they hoped would move sizable numbers, but the fact came out that Bruce Foxton was most effective under the creative blanket of Paul Weller's genius songs, and not as a solo artist writing his own material.

Bruce Foxton: Reviews, Discography, Audio Clips, and more
For Foxton, following up the Jam's incredible success must have been a nerve-wracking situation, especially since he was not the main songwriter in the band (only a handful of Foxton tracks exist in the Jam's catalog).
Strangely enough, this slab of unmelodic garbage actually did pretty well in the U.K. charts, a promising sign for all involved (except the listener).

 Jamming! Magazine: Tony Parsons on Bruce Springsteen, 1984
That transition would come about the following year as Born In The USA went from mere Bruce Album to Everyman Album – one of those records it seems like the whole world falls in love with.
Moreover, the album had come and gone already; it only enjoyed a second, extended life because of… well, lots of things really, but people like Parsons certainly played their part.
They insistend that Born In The USA was too great a rock album to be confined to Bruce Springsteen fans.

Foxton's deft playing and harmonies certainly added to the Jam's winning sound, although his own songwriting (usually a track per album) fell way below the standard set by Weller.

 Jamming! Magazine Archives: Paul Weller interview from 1978
In the week following the group's headlining appearance at the violence-ridden Reading Festival over the August Bank Holiday, just before school started back up, I went to the RAK Studios in St John's Wood, understandably nervous about conducting my first ever interview with none other than my icon.
(Funny the details you remember, but I'd never had that culinary delight before.) I'm assuming that Bruce and Rick were in attendance, but given that Weller was recording 'English Rose' that day, his first enrirely solo cut, I can't be certain.
I do remember bets being placed on the impending chart position for 'David Watts,' which had just been released.
