Tim Simmons is a vibrant and driven musician/guitarist currently based in West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who denotes his playing style as melodic rock, as one might want to hear on his most recent recording, "Eternal Dream". His workhorse guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has been playing guitar since 1974, and truthfully shares his career objective, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When the attempt was made to uncover his definitive or preferred effect for the guitar, Simmons purposefully responded with, "Loads of distortion," and then volunteered his musicial goals, "Probably a bit of bittersweetness. Beautiful, yet somewhat melancholy." He keeps open the possibility 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 muses emphatically.
Simmons winds up by detailing 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."
