Paul Weller has said a reunion of The Jam would be "absurd".

The 54-year-old said that although he admires veteran bands like The Rolling Stones, who are still performing together despite all of the members being in their 60s and 70s, he doesn't see his group reforming, reported The Sun.

The singer-songwriter said: "I take my hat off to people like the Stones but it's not for me. I couldn't do that. Jagger is brilliant and long may he rock.

"I couldn't make my career out of old songs, it would do my head in."

Paul also ruled out the chance of The Jam, who were big in the 70s and early 80s with hits like Town Called Malice and Beat Surrender, getting back together to perform again.

"No way would it happen," he said.

"You can't recapture those things, and also why should you? It would be absurd - three 50-year-old geezers jumping around the stage."
