To millions of music lovers, Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock and roll history as the guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums, performing more than 6,400 high-octane concerts, and continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe.
From the ground breaking Amboy Dukes’ hit “Journey to the Center of the Mind”, to classics like “Stranglehold” and “Cat Scratch Fever”, Damn Yankees chartbuster “High Enough,” and cult classic “Fred Bear”, Ted’s no-holds barred career spans five decades, and has been featured on A&E’s Biography and on VH1’s Behind the Music. Named Detroit’s greatest guitar player of all time by readers of MLive!, Nugent performed for 55,000 marines, sailors and families at Camp Pendleton’s Rockin’ the Corps, was honored to join fellow musician Toby Keith on a USO Tour of the Persian Gulf, and has donated in excess of 6000 concerts and backstage passes to individual troops stateside.
“God knows I love my music as inspired by the Godfathers of American blues, R&B, gospel & UltraROCK like Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, Lightning Hopkins, Robert Johnson, Mose Allison, Bo Diddly, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Wilson Picket, allthings mighty MOTOWN & so many other beyondSOULmasters! Therefore I love all of you who love my music and all killer music. But beyond the phenom of STRANGLEHOLD, CATSCRATCH, WANGDANG and all the classics, stands the masterpiece FRED BEAR about my friend hero BloodBrother that many may not be aware of. Listen to this spiritual magic closely and wallow in the soul soundtrack of mankind! ENJOY!” -Ted Nugent
