Detroit, Michigan is the stomping ground from which Ted Nugent arose. At the young age of six, Nugent
picked up the guitar and started to play by teaching himself. By the age of fourteen, he started a band called the Lourds.
They were considered quite talented and were given the opportunity to impress the crowd at the 1964 Michigan State Fair. It
was because of this performance that the band was invited to join the Beau Brummels and the Supremes as an opening act. Later
that year, Ted Nugent moved to Chicago where he fronted a band called Amboy Dukes. Following graduation, the Amboy Dukes front
man decided to move back to Detroit where he sought new members for his band. It was not long in the Motor City before the
band signed a deal with Mainstream Records and set out to release its debut album. The band received quite a bit of success
nationally and had a single on the top of the pop charts.
The band's live shows were impressive and involved using props
and pyrotechnics, and even live animals. The outrageous stage performances and Ted Nugent's stage presence lead to the band
referred to as Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes. Eventually, Ted Nugent set out on his solo career. His most successful album
has been Cat Scratch Fever, as it's record sales eventually topped off at more than three million copies. A few of the hits
included the following rock anthems: "Out of Control," "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard." At the end of
the 1970s, Ted Nugent elected to take a short hiatus from the music industry. He then released two albums in the mid 1980s:
Penetrator and Little Miss Dangerous. When the nineties rolled in, Ted Nugent collaborated with Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw
to establish Damn Yankees. Ted Nugent was never shy about his political leanings and has often been on the soapbox of such
self-proclaimed "right-winged" predilections on gun ownership. While it has been argued to have negatively affected his musical
career to some extent, Ted Nugent continues to play shows and garner the fans' attention. In 2000, Ted Nugent opened for the
KISS Farewell Tour. Like Nugent, Gene Simmons is reportedly a self-identified right-wing compatriot on some issues.
2012, Nugent found himself at the center of another political debate regarding gun control when he spoke out against Bob Costas
who publicly stated a need for gun control. According to Nugent's Tweet, "We thought Bob Costas was smarter than that. Only
fools blame tools instead of human failings. Shame Bob." Alas, it isn't just gun rights that get Nugent fired up. Ted Nugent
has been associated with a significant number of philanthropic organizations that include Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
