Jones Envied Ashcroft's Solo Success
by Staff

The Verve star Simon Jones confesses he struggled to watch bandmate Richard Ashcroft carve out a solo career.

The frontman released his own songs following the breakdown of the band in 1999.

And Jones admits he was jealous of his pal's success.

He says, "I couldn't listen to it. I had lost my band and he went on to have a solo career and that was painful.

"When Richard played with Coldplay I turned it off. I had to find a way to deal with the fact that this thing that was so precious to me was lost.

"My way to deal with that was not to listen to Richard's records." (c) WENN
