Black Submarine's Nick McCabe says arena tours were wrong for The Verve

Former Verve guitarist Nick McCabe and bass player Simon Jones enjoy touring small venues with new band Black Submarine more than playing arenas with the Brit-rock heroes.

Nick, 42, told me: “I had a working-class guilt – arenas were the wrong place for The Verve.”

This week’s debut album New Shores features Nick’s daughter Elly, 20, who sings on the track "Lover."

Nick admitted: “It could be a leg-up for her own stuff.”
