Kim Simmonds Death, Obituary – Kim Simmonds, who passed away at the age of 75, was a co-founder of the band Savoy Brown and served as the band’s guitarist. Confirmation of the news was delivered today via the official pages of the band on a number of different social media channels. They added, “Please take notice that one of Kim’s final requests was to extend her gratitude to the Savoy Brown admirers.” Kim had asked them to express her appreciation to the fans of Savoy Brown. “Your assistance was extremely valued, and I am confident that it will remain so in the years to come.”
In August, Simmonds came clean about his ongoing battle with stage four cancer, which he had been getting treatment for for the greater part of a year at that point. He was told that he had a rare kind of colon cancer known as signet-cell colon cancer. Signet-cell colon cancer is a subtype of colon cancer that only accounts for less than one percent of all cases. In many cases, it is not found early enough for there to be a chance of recovery at an earlier stage. “I’ve been receiving chemotherapy, and that has made it difficult for me to play gigs,” Simmonds was quoted as saying in an official statement that was released at the time.
“Peripheral neuropathy, one of the more serious adverse effects of this medication, has rendered the nerves in my hands, feet, and fingers inert,” you say. “This is one of the worst side effects.” While he was still a youngster, Simmonds started honing his skills as a guitarist by listening to the blues records that belonged to his older brother. Simmonds was born in 1947 in the country of Wales. It was a regular occurrence for him and his sibling to travel to London in order to attend live performances that were given by performers including Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, Freddie King, and even the Rolling Stones on one of their earlier tours.
“Ever since I was a young boy, I could see that this was the path that guitar music was going to take, and I always knew that I wanted to be a part of it,”
