Holland has been active in the entertainment industry since 1974.

To begin with, the boy was taught at Shooters Hill Grammar School, but was thrown out after damaging a teacher’s car, so at the age of 16 he began his professional career, becoming one of the first members of the famous Squeeze band, in which he played the keyboards until 1980, when he left the group to concentrate on his solo career.

Jools had actually started releasing solo recordings in 1978 (his first EP was called “Boogie Woogie ’78”), then in the early 1980s, releasing several singles between 1981 and 1984 and an album. However, it was his career as a television host that made him more famous. He presented the musical show “The Tube” with Paula Yates, but became notorious through the use of the phrase ‘groovy fuckers’ live on television, which caused the cancellation of the program.

In 1985, Holland returned to playing the keyboards in the band Squeeze through 1990, when he decided once again to part with Squeeze on good terms in order to resume his career as a solo musician and presenter. Since 1992, he has presented the eclectic music program “Later … with Jools Holland”. Holland was also seen in the movie “Spice World” (1997), in which he played the role of a conductor. At the end of 2002, he participated in the Concert for George at the Royal Albert Hall in memory of George Harrison and interpreted “Horse to the Water” with Sam Brown and Jim Capaldi. In 2004, he collaborated with Tom Jones on a traditional R&B music album, then in 2005, he gave a concert in Cardiff with Eric Clapton as headliner, for tsunami relief at the Millennium Stadium. In September 2006, he was made Deputy Lieutenant of Kent. Jools Holland has played twice in France with his large orchestra (about twenty musicians): the first time on 16th March 2006 at the Trabendo in Paris, the second, still in Paris, at the Alhambra on 6th April 2008.

Among many awards, he was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2003 in the Queen’s list of honours for his service to the English music industry as a musician and presenter.

Finally, in the personal life of the musician, Holland married Christabel McEwen, the ex-wife of Edward Lambton, Lord of Durham in 2005. The wedding was attended among others by Ringo Starr, Stephen Fry, Jennifer Saunders and Adrian Edmondson. Holland is an avid fan of the 1960s cult series “The Prisoner”, and owns several costumes and miscellaneous items from the series. He lives in the Westcombe Park area of Blackheath, south-east of London, where he built his studio according to his own design.

Quotes

#Quote
1If anyone wants to write anything snidey about Bob Geldof they'd better remember what he's done.
2[on Solomon Burke] The things he made up were based on a deep-rooted understanding of music and his church background. I remember him telling me the riff to Everybody Needs Somebody To Love was based on a riff he'd heard in church. To me, that was it: his genius was based in his humanity. He was a saintly man, but very funny too. He taught me two things. The first, music is 10 times better when you don't worry about it. The second, in his presence it was impossible not to learn to be more tolerant and kinder to your fellow inhabitants on planet Earth.
3[on Solomon Burke] His style influenced so many people - like Otis Redding, Van Morrison, lots of others. He was an originator, an inventor, like The Beatles or Ferdinand 'Jelly Roll' Morton. What was incredible was the fact that he wasn't studiously sitting in his garret trying to work things out, he was doing things that to him were effortless. When he wrote songs he was spontaneous.
4He can deliver a song so beautifully that he'll make you cry. (On Shane MacGowan)
5It would be great to have Bach in one corner, Bessie Smith in another, John Lennon in another. That's what I'd ideally like. A studio of the dead.
6I like to think of myself as Prince Charles's friend. He's a great fellow. There are always people trying to knock him but The Prince's Trust is one of the biggest supporters of young people in Britain.
7Early on with Squeeze we played the Hope & Anchor with U2. Three people turned up. Then two left. Then the last person left. That's the least-attended show I've ever done.
8The music industry is pretty cruel and horrid - that's what I'd tell young people. If you put the music first you should be alright. Put the other things - fame and all that stuff - aside, then you've got a chance of being OK. The music is the only thing to take seriously. The rest doesn't matter.
9Buying coffee at motorway services is the most extravagant thing I've done. It's £2.90 and horrible and you have to make it yourself - that's the most extravagant thing you'll ever buy.
10It's an entertainment show but I can't imagine the artists I like ever being on it. If you've got to ask someone about what you're doing, then why are you doing it? You should know what you're doing. You shouldn't listen to people's boring advice. Good luck to the people on it but it's more about the entertainment of seeing people burst into tears. It's not how I'd engage with music. (On The X Factor (2004))
11Sometimes when you see people play close-up you really appreciate how good they are - Paul Weller's one of those. Solomon Burke was brilliant when he came on. He died recently and he was my mate, he was the king of soul.
12I learned from Van Morrison and BB King that the first take is the best. It's about capturing a moment. It's the same as love's first kiss. If you try to do it again it doesn't work so well.
13It's a shame. We're only on 15 weeks a year but we could be on every night and fill it. You have to get the balance right - a legendary person, a new person, a popular musician, someone well known in their own field but not well known to the general public. People are going to live shows more, which is great. The more you listen to music the more you find out about it and the greater it becomes. It would be great if there were more shows like ours but I'm happy we're doing it.
14I'm the only man who dares to bring together Chas and Dave with Michael McDonald and Alison Moyet on the same record. It's the sound of joy.
15When I started on The Tube (1982), I realised I asked too many questions. Then I read this book by Commander Burt of Scotland Yard, who was the person who interrogated Nazi war criminals and got confessions out of all of them. His secret was to relax them and then say absolutely nothing. The person was so desperate to unburden themselves they just started talking.
16I think there's a view that only ghosts, lunatics and people on the sofa want to watch music programmes.
17Almost every group that is a success - The Beatles, Stones (The Rolling Stones), Oasis, Squeeze - they all start off with a drummer they have to sack and get another one in. You can get away with not being the best bassist or guitar player but the drummer has to be absolutely bang on it.
18He (Ringo Starr) is one of the greats. I've played with him and he can not only do the boom-splat pretty well but as soon as you start to boogie he locks into that. I can see why The Beatles snapped him up. He invented a load of stuff and is one of the most important drummers in history.
19On being awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) I am tremendously honoured to received this award and proud that the art of booge-ing has been officially recognised.
