Simply Red frontman Mick Hucknall has apologized to all the women he slept with during the band's heyday. By his estimation, Hucknall says that he slept with over 3,000 women in a three-year stretch in the '80s when his band was topping the charts around the world.

"Between 1985 and 1987, I would sleep with about three women a day, every day. I never said no. This was what I wanted from being a pop star. I was living the dream and my only regret is that I hurt some really good girls."

For most musicians this would be mark of pride, not a scarlet letter, but the now fifty-year-old Hucknall says that his past deeds have made him "feel a bit like the antichrist." This apology only begs the question, does this mean Hall & Oates have slept with 6,000-plus groupies?
