Tim Simmons is a reputable, altogether exciting six-stringer from West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who reveals his style as melodic rock, as one can clearly experience on his latest album, "Eternal Dream". His favorite guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has played guitar since 1974, and freely acknowledges his career aspiration, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When requested to reveal his ultimate effect for the guitar, Simmons answered back with, "Loads of distortion," and then brought up his musicial goals, "Probably a bit of bittersweetness. Beautiful, yet somewhat melancholy." He fervently hopes to one day study visual arts (painting, sculpting, creating miniature scenes), and is at this time listening to nothing in particular. His primary fulfillment? "Playing the guitar," he affirms conclusively.
Simmons concludes by mentioning continuing and future undertakings succinctly, by saying, "Dreaming of a time when once again I'll be able to play the guitar and use my now injured fingers."
