Simon Timony, the Guy Who Tried to Stop Vandals From Torching a Muni Bus, Has a Metal Punk Band
|Simon, after defending Muni|
Timony, who was punched and kicked by the mob of people, suffered a broken nose and two chipped teeth for trying to protect that $700,000 Muni bus. He wasn't able to save the bus, but he sure did make a name for himself in San Francisco (he was honored by the Board of Supervisors and offered free Muni rides for life).
Turns out, the Muni defender has already been enjoying local fame. As our sister blog All Shook Down notes today, when Timony isn't riding Muni, he's creating music with his band, Gaviotas, a metal-punk hybrid with a flair for smooth melodies and political lyrics.

Who knows, maybe that dangerous night on Muni gave Timony fodder for a new album.
