Melcher was born to actress Doris Day and her first husband, Al Jordan. She divorced Jordan in 1942 and Terry was later adopted by her third husband, Marty Melcher.
He has worked with the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Rip Chords, Gram Parsons, Paul Revere and the Raiders as well as his mother. On a less happy note, he rejected Charles Manson's attempts to become a musician, which was a contributory factor in the murderous cult's attack on Sharon Tate and her friends, who had recently bought Melcher's house on Cielo Drive.
