RE: Left-handed Compliments From Off the Wall

But I’ve been on and off this list for years, and one of the things Ted Killian is very good at is self-deprication.


Chill, Ted!  You play just fine.  And you appear to be a multi-talented fella, as well.  For example, your graphics for the Y2K4 stuff was obviously done by someone who knew what the hell they were doing.  Me being a professional graphic artist, I can safely make that statement, yes?  And your performances that I have seen, at Y2K2 and Y2K4 were musical and engaging.  What’s the prob?


False modesty can be just as egocentric as false bravado…I know this because I tend to fall into your camp myself.  That being said…an Incompetent Putz?  Sorry, I’m not buying it.

I haven't put out any new material in a while. However,
here are a couple of blurbs about my 2001 CD . . .

"Feedback shrieks and eBow howls over hypnotic
grooves add up to a great soundtrack for a bad dream."
-- Matt Blackett, Guitar Player Magazine, July 2002 issue

"If Terminator 2's evil robot played Morricone-styled
guitar to the accompaniment of loops of questionable
tonality, it'd sound like Ted Killian..."
-- Luke Martin, www.splendidezine.com

I always get a laugh out of stuff like this. I'm a 51-year-
old, grey-bearded white guy who's somewhat overweight
and mostly an incompetent putz at most things musical.
Little do they know.
