Who is Tom Linton?

Tom Linton (born August 8, 1975) is a guitarist for the band Jimmy Eat World. Born in Mesa, Arizona, Linton formed Jimmy Eat World with childhood friends Jim Adkins, Mitch Porter, and Zach Lind. On the earlier albums, Linton wrote several songs and performed lead vocals on them; since Clarity, however, the majority of songs have been sung and written by Jim. He named the band after a drawing created by his younger sibling, Ed, of his other younger sibling, Jim, eating the planet. He plays a red and black Gibson SG, and more recently, a black Les Paul. Linton was married to Joy Morgan on January 10, 2006 in Las Vegas.
