- Jools Holland.
Are Paul Weller and Ronnie wood the same person?
No Paul Weller and Jeff Beck are the same person- with a different syrup
I think there were about 10 people there under 50 and as someone who is well into his sixth decade I have to say- FFS CALL IT A DAY YOU ARE TOO OLD TO ROCK AND ROLL!Posted 3 years agodeadkennySubscriber
Why does New Year have to go with all this Scottish Hogmanay Hootenanny crap anyway?
What would have happened or will happen if the Scots bog off on their own? I will be objecting in the BBC are still spending tax payers money on it.
Should ban Auld Lang Syne too.

Watched it for Future Islands alone, and they didn’t disappoint. Rest of the show did though, worst line up I’ve seen on any Jools show.
I truly thought it was live too until a couple weeks ago. Tonight i felt cheated on the countdown so switched over and watched the numptys filming the fireworks on their phones at Westminster instead.
Future Islands on Tonight with Jools earlier this year was highlight of the series for me.Posted 3 years ago

I don’t subscribe to this. The voices may begin to strain and the swagger may be stifled, but the older boys blazed the trail and it’s always a pleasure to see them, whilst they are still in our presence. (although Tom Jones is pushing my sensibilities these days)
Listened to the new Bowie single? (Lazarus), it’s awesome. Still teaching the kids a thing or two
Was also surprised by how much I enjoyed New Order with La Roux on TFI Friday earlier too.Posted 3 years agoFunkyDuncMember
Ever since I found out they film it in August, or September, it’s a no from me…
And they don’t even film it at midnight either, it’s in the afternoon !
How dare they expect to have a life on New Years Eve
what will people do if they find out the queen doesn’t actually do her Christmas Day speech on Christmas Day 😯Posted 3 years agobikebouySubscriber
Last time I watched Jools was when Coldplay sang Yellow, ey that long ago.
I like his Tuesday night progs, always showcase really great artists. NYE show only showcases middle of the road rather dull music, music for lifts IMO.
I suspect though the show and Jools will be doing the same stuff every year until the BBC goes subscription only..Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
Worst ever? Really? 🙄Posted 3 years ago
I honestly thought it was the best one for years, they at least had a bunch of new fresh artists on, James Bay, Rhiannon Giddens, (Who I’d seen on Jools as part of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and is outstanding solo), Weller, the singer with Jeff Beck, who’s name escapes me, Pauline Black, all were really good, even Future Islands, who I don’t mind, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for I thought were pretty good.
I really don’t know just what the hell some people expect from a music programme; perhaps those slagging it off might like to suggest artists they’d put on, then we can criticise their choice.andytherocketeerSubscriber
seemed quite a bit more “joolsy” than normal (ie his rhythm+blues orchestra and friends), rather than guest bands.
not really a programme I “watch”, but one I have on in the background to listen too.
thought it was not bad, but then there was bog all on the other channels.Posted 3 years ago
Nah, the general consesus (interestingly) seems to be that this particular line up was rubbish. We’ve all seen Jools’ show before, and some weeks it’s simply marvellous. Just happens that this weeks didn’t float my boat at all. James Bay? Not fussed. The ska performance was quite enjoyable. Tom Jones, pony.
Of course it’s all completely subjective, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed previous hootenannys, not so this one. Way sub par.Posted 3 years ago
