Not a house-hold name - but I was very sorry to learn today of Ted’s passing.
Ted was one of the UK’s best repairmen, based in the North West but with very much a ‘national’ reputation. His clients included 10cc, Justin Haywood, Robert Fripp, Phil Manzenera, Marco Pirroni, George Harrison, Simply Red and many, many more. In later years he lectured at Leeds.
His knowledge was encyclopaedic - and his work was flawless. He was a wonderful bass player and a hugely funny, generous-spirited man.
He died suddenly on the 15th September aged 80. His funeral is due to take place at Dukinfield Crematorium at 1.30pm on 6th October should any one on the forum know him.
RIP Ted, it has been a privilege to have known you.
