We are saddened to report the recent passing of Ted Were, drummer and founding member of the Local 518’s pioneering country-rock band Silver Chicken. He drummed with the band from 1975-1978, and was back behind the drums once again last year at Silver Chicken’s sold-out reunion concerts at the Parting Glass in Saratoga Springs. After a long battle with cancer, Were died on Wednesday, July 9.
Those who wish to remember Ted in a special way may make a donation to the HopeClub of the Capital Region, 1 Penny Lane, Latham, NY 12110.
