Watch the full interview with ITV Meridian's Natalie Boare
He started out playing the piano in pubs in South East London. He went on to be part of the 70s rock band Squeeze and since then Jools Holland has performed with some iconic music artists including Sting, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, and Bono.
And 47 years after he started out in the business he's as popular as ever.
He's back on tour across the UK - tonight he's in Bournemouth, on the 28th he's at The Mayflower in Southampton and he's heading to Brighton in December.
And he has a new album due out on the 19th of November which includes a collaboration with Tom Jones.
Natalie Boare has been chatting to him.
