Dang! The Motor City Madman Turns 63

Uncle Ted celebrates another birthday today, born to rock, hunt, and stand by his conservative beliefs in Detroit, Michigan on December 13, 1948.

Ted was the lead guitarist for the Amboy Dukes and Damn Yankees, and of course has had a long solo career.  Among the many musical influences he cites: Jeff Beck, The Kinks, Jimmy Page, The Who, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix.

Thoughtful, sensitive, gentle toward all living things, the person just described has been in Ted’s gunsights for awhile now…lol… Nugent’s own words: “Vegetarians are cool.  All I eat are vegetarians except for the occasional mountain lion steak”. (Remind me to be out of the studio if he decides to visit)!

Love him or hate him for his views (even some hunters, such as my brother-in-law, are not happy with the canned hunt operation that Nugent runs), Ted knows how to attract attention and isn’t going to give up the spotlight anytime too soon.

Nugent wrapped up his “I Still Believe Tour” this past September and his stop in his hometown early in the month did not disappoint his fans.  Also to the delight of longtime followers of Ted, he was joined on the tour by Derek St. Holmes, the original singer and rhythm guitarist for the 1970’s Ted Nugent Band.

Uncle Ted might be getting old but it’ll no doubt be a long time before he hangs up his rifle OR his axe.
