Tim Simmons is a highly regarded and talented axe wielder currently based in West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who represents his playing style as melodic rock, as a listener can readily appreciate on his most recent album, "Eternal Dream". His most utilized guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has been playing guitar since 1974, and without beating around the bush discloses his career aspiration, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When prompted to divulge his ultimate effect for the guitar, Simmons responded by saying, "Loads of distortion," and continued by citing his musicial goals, "Probably a bit of bittersweetness. Beautiful, yet somewhat melancholy." He eagerly hopes to one day study visual arts (painting, sculpting, creating miniature scenes), and is presently listening to nothing in particular. His principal fulfillment? "Playing the guitar," he declares without a doubt.
Simmons wraps up by mentioning current and approaching undertakings enthusiastically, by saying, "Dreaming of a time when once again I'll be able to play the guitar and use my now injured fingers."
