After extensive touring, Ted left Wishbone in 1974 to pursue a personal pilgrimage. Whilst traveling, he was drawn to the comprehensive works of Buckminster Fuller, becoming involved in the ‘World Man Band’ (alongside Michael Mitchell) – an initiative designed to raise global consciousness through rock music.
In 1989, Ted reunited with the original members of Wishbone Ash to record Nouveau Calls for Miles Copeland III’s No Speak label. A personal highlight of this period was being invited to join Copeland’s Night of the Guitar tour; working alongside fellow band member Andy Powell and other guitar legends such as Randy California, Peter Haycock, Steve Howe, Steve Hunter, Robby Krieger, Leslie West, Alvin Lee and Jan Akkerman.
Since leaving the band for the second time in 1992, Ted has continued to explore eclectic musical influences which have formed his latest album, a collaboration with his wife Majella, whom he is excited to introduce to the world.
