Savoy Brown

Born from the legendary London's blues rock explosion of the 1960s, Savoy Brown have been kicking out strutting boogies and grizzly riffs for over 50 years, cementing their position as authentic, landmark figures of the blues scene, touring constantly through the years with the same swaggering force. Leader of the band for the whole time has been Kim Simmonds and, although many different members have passed in and out over the years, most longstanding fans regard the key members to be Simmonds, Dave Peverett, Chris Youlden, Roger Earl and Tony Stevens, who created the band's formidable reputation with the albums 'A Step Further', 'Blue Matter' and 'Raw Sienna'. Their love of full throttle Chicago blues made them ideal touring partners for the likes of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers and Cream, and, in 1970, they released their most successful album 'Looking In', which reached number 39 in the US. The core of the band went on to form Foghat, but Simmonds stuck loyally to his electrifying blues jams, and built up a large following in America, where they lapped up albums such as 'Hellbound Train', 'Lion's Share' and 'Savage Return'. They also took Kiss and AC/DC on the road with them as opening acts when they were first starting out, and they remain respected forefathers of British blues rock and an important influence on The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin.
