Simply Red - Mick Hucknall Compares One Direction To The Beatles

Former Simply Red frontman Mick Hucknall is convinced One Direction are on the road to becoming the next Beatles, insisting the revered rockers also started out as a "boyband".

The British crooner is a big fan of the young pop stars, and he is adamant they have a long career in front of them if they can start writing more of their own songs.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I rather like One Direction, I think they're good. People can be snobby and say they don't write their own songs, but it's the pop industry. When the Beatles first started they were a boyband and then, through their writing, they merged into something else. So who knows what's going to happen for One Direction."
