His history is a musical journey beginning in Texas with Steve Miller, schoolkids together in the garage and at Friday night dances. Then, the two of them in bands at college in Madison. Adventures in Sweden and back with Miller in San Francisco. After that, moving forward – Top 40 headliner constantly on the radio (what? this again?), funky white guy, bar owner, vintner, jazz singer, dependable rocker. Holy smokes!

About Ted Ringer

I am a writer, artist, and listener. Great music is everywhere and has no limits. Some of it is well-orchestrated and some is short and sweet. It can spring out of a moment of deep feeling or result from long periods of development. Music is communication, inspiration, and a million other things. This blog wants to share the wealth and keep toes tapping.
