Grateful Ted showed up at a gathering we hosted - he wasn’t explicitly invited, but boy were we happy when he showed up. Ted, and his dog Dusty, came to the Oregon woods last summer after their best friend of 40 years died. The woods, not anyone’s “psychobabble,” offered solace.
Grateful Ted spent 39 years married to 13 different women - or so he claims. But, music was his first love. He’s been writing songs since he was 14; every time he sat down to write, he found he had something to say.
All of the songs he plays are 100% true - except for the parts he makes up.
