    The old saying goes "love is good when its new but fades as it gets old.
    Most of us will fall into this romantic cliche at some time or another in our life.
    Giving my usual shout out to all my followers and future followers.
    TED ROBERSON began playing guitar in the middle 50's

    with local gospel groups in his hometown, Angier, North

    Carolina. Early in 1964 he joined Les Cooper and the

    House Rockers as a guitarist. The group's biggest hit

    record was called Wiggle Wobble. He toured with Cooper

    and the Rockers until he was drafted in the army in 1966

    for a two year tour of service during the Vietnam War,

    during which he faced active combat.

    Returning home in 1968, Ditto Edwards (of Ditto and The

    Lovers) recruited Mr. Roberson to tour Europe and the

    Middle East as their lead guitarist and vocalist.

    In 1970 Ted created, arranged and produced the

    preliminary cuts for "We've Got To Bust Out Of The

    Ghettos" in his home studio in a collaboration with

    Ricky Williams (brilliant pianist) and Moody Scott (the

    legendary R&B, Soul and Blues Singer.) The album

    production was sounding so good, Roberson decided to

    complete the production of "Bust Out" at Odds On Studio

    in Las Vegas where, in the final version Ted also did

    bass guitar and background vocals on the recordings.

    In 1971 Mr. Roberson toured Europe again, this time with

    Ditto and The Lovers and the USO show, predominantly as

    lead guitar and background vocalist.
    After a year, good as the music he was making was, Ted

    decided he needed to do more of his own music. He

    collected the best musicians he could find and formed

    his own group called The N.Y. Stock Exchange. Pierre

    Royal, a booking agent in Montréal Canada heard the

    group play and immediately sent them on a five year

    touring through Canada from St.Catherine’s to Nova

    Scotia, Roberson doing lead vocals and guitar.
    In 1976, exhausted from the non-musical work necessary

    to keep the band running, Ted disbanded the group and

    the Bill Doggett Combo, then famous for the song, Honky

    Tonk recruited him for another long tours, this time of

    America, from the east to the west coast.
    That tour brought Roberson into doing a long series of

    gigging free lances with Don Covey, Ben E. King, Noble

    Watts, Etta James, Wilbert Harrison, Donny Albert, Eddy

    Holman and dozens of other greats. During that time

    Roberson collaborated with Moody as co- writer arranger

    producer, and Ted on lead, bass and rhythm guitar,

    keyboards and back up vocals as they produced the very

    popular CD, The Many Moods of Moody.
    Taking a very long break from touring, Mr. Roberson now

    enjoys doing local gigs with his favorite musicians

    (Warren Daniels,Kenny Barone,Gregg Wise,Lou Green,Denard

    MichaelsRicky Williams, Moody Scott). Ted writes and

    records more and more of his own music. He says, "I

    just love making music!" and you can sure hear that in

    his work.
