i only know ol' ted. was a huge fan of him some 10 years ago. lucky that you met him.
Some years ago, Unka Ted was going to play at the Bronco Bowl and was going to have a booksigning at a store in Dallas. He had to have emergency root canal surgery that morning and had to cancel the book signing, though he still did the show. Anyway, he said he would come back to do the signing and he did so, honoring his own word. Though he is tall, I'm actually taller than he is. He describes himself as 6' 1" whereas I am 6' 6".
The only thing he ever did that didn't make sense to me, and he agrees, is joining Damn Yankees. While he was typical Ted, it got somewhat muted and really became the Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades show.
I saw him in the reality show "Supergroup." Even though the show was funny and he stepped back enough to help the music, it was also a lot of created drama and not how these people are in real life. Though he played his part straight and not to the camera. As well as Scott Ian played himself. I think Bas was all about the drama.
I saw him perform at the Coca Cola Starplex back in 1996 or 97 and it was amazing. He kept teasing the audience by ending most every song with the opening of "Wang Dang."
