SIMO in Premier Guitar


J.D. Simo: The Bandstand and The Bible of Classic Rock

Nashville’s JD Simo is a graduate of the Don Kelley school of honky-tonk, proving ground for some of the world’s best pickers. Other alumni of Kelley’s legendary Robert’s Western World band include Johnny Hiland and Jerry Douglas/Patty Loveless sideman Guthrie Trapp.

But hearing Simo’s self-titled band, you would never guess that the lad can still occasionally be heard tearing up “Truck Driving Man” with Kelley & Co. Simo’s music is way more classic rock than classic country: “Fool for You” sounds like a Free outtake and “Aoh” recalls the Yardbirds, while other tunes flash back to Zeppelin, or Truth-era Jeff Beck.
