Paul was the first child of Louis and Belle Simon. Pauls father came from a Hungarian Jewish family and he was the first violin player of the Hungarian Radio. Paul was born only after his family moved to the US before the Second World War. Louis was known as an accomplished, professional bass player who performed on radio and television (and was referred to in the first line of the song ´Baby Driver´). Paul later referred, that he was really an excellent musician and his teacher in music. His mother was an elementary school teacher until she quit to raise Paul and his younger brother, Eddie. Pauls parents were a huge influence in many ways. First, his mother had a religious influence on her boy. Paul grew up being fully aware of his Jewish heritage and his mother especially observed many traditional Jewish customs and tried, like many Jewish mothers, to bring her two sons up with these customs. Unlike his mother, Paul´s father was not one for visiting the Synagogue, nor observing Jewish tradition and this also had an effect on the two boys. Louis was leaving Belle to go alone to Synagogue wailing, ´Why am I the only one who goes to Synagogue?´
