Ted Nugent Background
Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Ted
Nugent picked up the guitar at the tender age of six. Considered a self-taught musician, Nugent started his own band, the
Lourds, by the time he was 14. Because of their impressive performance at the 1964 Michigan State Fair, the Lourds were asked
to open for the Beau Brummels and the Supremes. Later that year, Nugent relocated to the Windy City where he served as the
front man for the Amboy Dukes.
After he graduated from high school in 1967, Nugent went back to the Motor City, where
he began the hunt for new members for the Amboy Dukes. Within three months, the band inked a deal with Mainstream Records
and issued their eponymous debut album. The following year, they garnered national attention with the single, "Journey to
the Center of the Mind," which climbed to No. 8 on the pop charts.
In the early 1970s, the Amboy Dukes continued to
record while maintaining an exhaustive tour schedule of over 300 concerts yearly. The Amboy Dukes incorporated theatrical
elements into their concerts, using props, pyrotechnics and even live animals.
Ted Nugent's growing popularity and outrageous
stage presence prompted the Amboy Dukes to change their name to Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes. In 1975, Nugent split from
the Amboy Dukes and embarked on a solo career. His first solo album, Ted Nugent, featured the hits "Hey Baby" and "Strangle
Hold." Two years later, he cut the most successful album to date: Cat Scratch Fever. The album eventually topped sales off
at over three million copies and included the classic rock anthems of "Out of Control," "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Workin' Hard,
Playin' Hard." By the time the '80s arrived, Nugent's popularity began to decline. He stepped out of the spotlight for a few
years before putting out two albums Penetrator (1984) and Little Miss Dangerous (1986). On the doorstep of the '90s, he collaborated
with seasoned rockers Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw to establish the band, Damn Yankees.
Nugent not only dedicated his
time to music but also to his other passions of hunting and politics. But his outspoken views on gun ownership and right-wing
politics hampered his music career in the 1990s. In 1995, he returned to his solo career, releasing Spirit of the Wild. In
the summer of 2000, Nugent opened for the KISS Farewell Tour which included nearly 80 sold-out concerts. Also in 2000, he
authored a book of essays called God, Guns and Rock-N-Roll.
Nugent was back in the headlines again in December 2012
after he publicly condemned sportscaster Bob Costas for talking about the need for more gun control in the U.S. Costas discussed
his views publicly during the December 2, 2012, Kansas City Chiefs-Carolina Panthers football game. Nugent fired back using
Twitter: "We thought Bob Costas was smarter than that. Only fools blame tools instead of human failings. Shame Bob."
his career, Nugent has been involved in more than two dozen charitable and political organizations, including Mothers Against
Drunk Driving and the National Rifle Association.
