Back in 2006, I did my last run of shows with my old band Lost in Line.

We played the Green Room in Canberra,after we played, I met this bloke in the crowd and started chatting to him.

At the time, all I could remember was the guy had a ginger afro, a backpack and was completely maggot.

Over the years, he'd come to shows, always front row and centre, having the time of his life.

In December 2013, he was tragically taken from us.

Here is my tribute to him, I hope he's up there with that massive grin on his face, enjoying the shit out of this.

Track Name: Ted Danson To The Sky
February 2006
A room filled with smoke and drunken antics
Crowd singing "not the same"
There I met a punk rock kid
With a ginger afro and a backpack full of tricks
and a message to pass on

He spoke, he slurred, he said
but I didn't understand
No one ever did
But everyone, they loved that ginger kid

Ted Danson to the sky
To you and Tony Sly
and we'll dance away the night
Goodbye and i'll see you on the other side

So many things that i'll remember
Right now and forever
Always a handful of beer
A hug that filled you up with cheer
and the biggest smile from ear to ear

He'd forever quote his favourite words of note
I'd see him coming and I knew what was in store

These are the days that i'll remember
Right now and forever
These moments i'll treasure
Right now and forever
