An Elvis cover I did with my Korean buddy “Ted.” Yes, I was rocking a mustache (mustache May?).
Another calibration with my Korean buddy “Ted.” This is Eric Clapton’s beautiful ballad, dedicated to his son Conor, who died at the age of four-and-a-half when he fell from a 53rd-story window.
When I was stationed in Korea, one of my favorite hangouts was a guitar shop named “Mr. Potato.” I got to know Mr. Potato (who gave himself the English name of “Ted”) very well throughout my short stay in Korea. He now lives in California and we still keep in touch. Ted recognized I was pretty good with the Korean language for being a foreigner so he talked me into singing a old Korean love song. This was the result:
This is an acoustical song I wrote for my Grandma when she was dying. Grandma Klahn was a very strong woman and endured many things in her life, but yet retained the sort of soft, motherly love we all wish for our mothers to have. She refused to be deadened by life and continuously found ways to give love to others until the day she died. She now rests in the peace of our Lord.
