Tim Simmons is a vital, sparkling guitar player from West Memphis, Arkansas (U.S.A.) who expresses his style as melodic rock, as can be heard on his latest release, "Eternal Dream". His favorite guitar is a 'Brown guitar' (custom). Simmons has played guitar since 1974, and plainly avows his career goal, "Earn a living by doing sessions, teaching, recording more CDs, audio mastering, soundtracks, etc."|
When asked to reveal his ideal effect for the guitar, Simmons countered with, "Loads of distortion," and then detailed his musicial goals, "Probably a bit of bittersweetness. Beautiful, yet somewhat melancholy." He hopes to someday study visual arts (painting, sculpting, creating miniature scenes), and is at this time listening to nothing in particular. His utmost satisfaction? "Playing the guitar," he answers decidedly.
Simmons details continuing and future projects in his own words, "Dreaming of a time when once again I'll be able to play the guitar and use my now injured fingers."
