Time For Kids: Spotlight
At age 11, SIMON FAIR TIMONY has just released his second album: Songs and Advice for Kids Who Have Been Left Behind. He plays the guitar and sings with his band, The Stinky Puffs. His mom plays the drums. Their next album will feature musicians from the rock group Nirvana.
"My favourite song on this album is I Know I Know," says the long-haired sixth grader from New Jersey. "It's about how I felt when my step-dad left our family."
Simon also writes songs about candy, monsters, dreams, vitamins, and love. "Kids should write about their feelings and write songs, if they can." And Simon says to do this: "More kids should start bands."
