Weller almost quit music for gardening!

British rocker Paul Weller was so serious about quitting his music career to become a gardener he designed a psychedelic logo for a van to hold his equipment.

The Wild Wood singer was to be joined in his agricultural venture by Primal Scream guitarist Andrew Innes, who had an ulterior motive for taking up the trade.

Weller says, "That was quite a serious idea. I fancied myself as a gardener - regular hours, fresh air and all that.

"I even went as far as making a psychedelic sign for the van. I was going to do it with Innes from Primal Scream. He liked the idea of going round to Phil Collins house and concreting over his garden."
