Tim Simmons is a highly regarded, enthusiastic guitar player from West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who expresses his style as melodic rock, as one can appreciate on his latest album, "Eternal Dream". His favorite guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has played guitar since 1974, and candidly acknowledges his career aspiration, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When asked to name his number one effect for the guitar, Simmons answered back with, "Loads of distortion," and then cited his musicial goals, "Probably a bit of bittersweetness. Beautiful, yet somewhat melancholy." He hopes to one day study visual arts (painting, sculpting, creating miniature scenes), and is at this time listening to nothing in particular. His utmost fulfillment? "Playing the guitar," he affirms unquestionably.
Simmons concludes by mentioning continuing and future undertakings in his own words, "Dreaming of a time when once again I'll be able to play the guitar and use my now injured fingers."
