Tim Simmons is a distinctive and adroit axe wielder currently based in West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who represents his playing style as melodic rock, as a music fan can now experience 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, divulges his career objective, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When requested to let slip his favorite or most used 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 principal gratification? "Playing the guitar," he explains without hesitation.
Simmons wraps up by noting long-term and forthcoming endeavors enthusiastically, by saying, "Dreaming of a time when once again I'll be able to play the guitar and use my now injured fingers."
