Kim Simmonds 18/12/22

"Kim leads the band with his trusty Gibson 335 and Fender DeVille amp. Over his playing career he has played Teles Les Pauls, SG’s and Flying V’s but the hollowbody suits tonight’s Bluesier show. Held vertically in the wrinkled septuagenarians firm grasp, white locks flowing, the growl of the humbuckers match the growl of Kim’s voice. The pleasing growl of a seasoned vocalist." That was part of our glowing take on Savoy Brown, just under three years ago at Chislehurst's The Beaverwood in January 2020 (pictured), and very sadly this Tuesday 13th December, Kim Simmonds, founding member, guitarist, and vocalist, passed away at the age of 75, and in tribute, today's Video Of The Day of the band's BBC Sessions (1968, 1970, 1971) is dedicated in Kim's memory.
