"Ted Waterhouse looks like a GQ model and writes and sings music with a quality usually reserved for those who die at age 27. His fingers dance faster than race horses across the fret board of his Gibson ES-175 "
- Glenn Starkey, New Times SLO

Ted Waterhouse re-releases his timely political song, 'Woody's Ghost' 

By Glen Starkey
 "I thought that in light of recent national events that need no further elaboration, this song might be timely. It's one that I wrote a few years back, in the days of George W., but it's sure been coming to mind during the last four years and especially in the last few weeks!" Waterhouse wrote in an email. "The lyric is from the point of view of the disembodied spirit of iconic musical hero Woody Guthrie and was borne out of the question, 'What would Woody think of all these shenanigans?" 1-28/Content?oid=10546833
