Todd Simpson ... a story you simply will not believe. Todd overcame incredible odds to even survive childhood, then faced challenging disabilities that he battles to this day. You wouldn't know it to see him, though. At the still somewhat tender age of 18, he was inspired by a music video (Hendrix, no less) and decided that he wanted to play some music too. So he picked up a guitar, and impossibly soon after he was wailing like this (video below). See him for yourself this month, when he performs at the Texas Book Festival on Sunday, October 28, 2012, at 3:00 PM.
