Xristian Simon (Faster Pussycat)
- Electric Guitar
- GBM Guitar Boomers
Born in the UK and raised on both sides of the Atlantic, Xristian Simon moved to Los Angeles, CA permanently in 1993 to explore opportunities in music. In 1996, Xristian was introduced by a mutual friend to Taime Downe who was working on his new creation, "The Newlydeads," after the initial disbanding of "Faster Pussycat." In 2000, FP reformed but this time Taime incorporated elements of both his bands to create, in his words, "the band I always wanted." Xristian continues to work and tour with FP worldwide and more recently has developed a passion for photography, capturing his experiences of life and the world while touring.
Xristian uses Xentric/Sandoval/Gretsch Guitars, Seymour Duncan Pickups, InTune Guitar Picks, Line 6, Tech 21, and Marshall.
