"Kim was a prolific writer who kept the band going for almost 60 years, which is a marvel in itself," says Savoy Brown bassist Pat DeSalvo. "When he first started, Kim was a traditional blues guy and then he started evolving the band; he did "Louisiana" and "Hellbound Train" and they started taking the blues concept and evolving it into more of a progressive rock blues situation and what's going on now is that the record is out, me and Garnett (Drummer Grimm) are doing interviews and playing with Sean Chambers who played guitar for Hubert Sumlin and who has eight records out of his own. In October we toured with him in Europe and it went very well, we were feeling it out and so we're gonna do a record with him now and we're starting to do dates with him."
