Tim Simmons is an accomplished and highly regarded six-stringer currently based in West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who reveals his playing style as melodic rock, as a listener can readily experience on his most recent album, "Eternal Dream". His most utilized guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has been playing guitar since 1974, and with no holds barred declares his career aspiration, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When requested to divulge his one essential effect for the guitar, Simmons came back with, "Loads of distortion," and then pointed out 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 presently listening to nothing in particular. His primary fulfillment? "Playing the guitar," he declares categorically.
Simmons concludes by listing current and approaching 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."
