Graham Wellman, ‘Gray’ to his friends, is a Teddy Boy; it’s the first thing you see. The silver quiff, mutton chops and the faded tattoos are a visual manifestation of his identity; he's a Ted. Born out of post-war gloom in the early 50’s, the Teds emerged as Britain‘s original teen subculture. Fuelled by the devil’s music the Teds were anti-establishment and out for a good time.   

Graham is a proud 70's Ted, a loving son, devoted father and a proud grandfather. He‘s an old fashioned gentleman who holds the door open for women and affectionately calls them “sweetheart”.

"Something to be"' is an intimate portrait of a man and the importance of family; a story of brotherhood, identity and notions of masculinity. A shared love of Americana, cold beer and a longing for simpler times.

To my friend 'Gray' - a man who lives life head on with integrity; a bonafide rock 'n’ roll raconteur.
