Tim Ruch

Tim grew up in the Maryland area. He was inspired by a childhood friend Rod Moody (RIP) and his brother Michael to play guitar at the age of 14.

The impact of Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, Eddie Van Halen, and Gary Moore, launched his passion for the music scene.

His first band, Southern Steel along with others, Crystal Clear, and Inquiring Minds, were a solid foundation for his dynamic guitar playing.

Tim has found a home with Poison Whiskey.
