When he had reached the age of 12, his family gave him a guitar, which he learned to play from a few basic music lessons and by playing along to music.
Weller had been introduced into the world of music in the year of 1977. He had made a national level appearance, with hiss band named The Jam, which he had formed four years earlier in collaboration with his friends Steve Brookes, Rick Buckler and Bruce Foxton.

The Clash had looked at the band with interest and, Joe Strummer even had a conversation with Weller and he gave an idea to write songs about the overall trends of the society and politics.
The Clash had really a very good impression about The Jam. They had taken them along as the support act on their White Riot tour of 1977. Later, The Jam proved to be far more successful in the singles charts than The Clash in the UK.
The Jam was considered to be one of the biggest bands in Britain. They had the honor to be the second after The Beatles to perform two songs named Town Called Malice and Precious on one edition of Top of the Pops.
Despite the success of the band, Weller thought to explore other musical avenues he felt he could not follow with The Jam. In 1982, Weller announced that The Jam would disband at the end of the year.
Their final single, Beat Surrender, became their fourth UK chart topper, going straight to No. 1 in its first week. Later Weller had formed a band called The Style Council, which carried on till 1989. After that, his solo career started and he had seen many new dimensions of the world of music.
