Biography

One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970’s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today.

I’m having a nice pause in touring. No gigs till 3/20 (Germany). I can’t check out from the day to day behind the scenes business but not being on the front line is a welcome stress relief. I hope I don’t get too used to this! #PauseInLife
