You may not know Teddy Diaz but you know this:“Enveloped Ideas” was the defining New Wave song of the mid-80s, a perfect pop gem written by the Dawn’s original guitarist, the charismatic Teddy Diaz.
It was the song that would propel the band to mainstream success—but without the guy who wrote it. Teddy was knifed to death on a dimly-lit street in Tatalon, Quezon City on August 21, 1988, after being robbed of his wallet. Teddy was 25. (His assailant was eventually caught and sentenced to life imprisonment.)
The center of the Dawn’s music
To mark the 25th anniversary of his passing, two shows were held. The first at ‘70s Bistro in Quezon City, followed by another gig a day later at 19 East in Muntinlupa.
At the ‘70s Bistro show, vocalist Jett Pangan told Yahoo OMG!, “It’s really just another Dawn gig. This time, it’s our way of remembering Teddy Diaz who founded the group and was at the center of our music. We owe it to him to keep his memory alive.”
