Simone explains his time with The Felice Brothers

From Uncut magazine:

With my brothers, I sang a handful of leads and co-wrote the lyrics with Ian on almost every song, but the proudest part of me being in that band was putting it together as a traveling circus or a traveling tent revival floor show. Being in the Felice Brothers was like being part of a circus or the crew of a pirate ship, but in the end I had to jump ship. I needed to be in a place where I could do something that was just me, and I wouldn't have to be the keeper of the pirate log, navigator of a pirate ship.
