Tim Simmons is a consummate and seasoned musician/guitarist currently based in West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who denotes his playing style as melodic rock, as a music fan can hear on his most recent recording, "Eternal Dream". His workhorse guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has been playing guitar since 1974, and putting it simply, relates his career objective, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When requested to let slip his top choice for an effect for the guitar, Simmons resolutely answered, "Loads of distortion," and then outlined his musicial goals, "Probably a bit of bittersweetness. Beautiful, yet somewhat melancholy." He maintains a desire to, at some point, study visual arts (painting, sculpting, creating miniature scenes), and is at the moment listening to nothing in particular. His most important gratification? "Playing the guitar," he explains without hesitation.
Simmons winds up by mentioning long-term and forthcoming endeavors insightfully, by saying, "Dreaming of a time when once again I'll be able to play the guitar and use my now injured fingers."
