Ted Nugent Highlights
Since a child, Ted Nugent was interested in music, and he began playing instruments as young as 6 years old. He got his start in the music world as the lead guitarist in a hard rock band called The Amboy Dukes in 1964. The Amboy Dukes consisted of Ted Nugent, Bob Lehnert, Gary Hicks and Dick Treat. In 1967, the band released its first album, which featured hard rock, acid rock and heavy metal. In 1968, two additional band members joined the group and it released its second album. By 1969, a third album was released, which featured a completely different band lineup. Drained by the constant reshuffling of band members, Ted Nugent broke out in a solo career in 1975 and recruited Derek St. Holmes, Rob Grange and Clifford Davies for his debut album, Ted Nugent. He released five albums through the 1970s, which were all well received by the public. However, his '80s albums brought him less luck, causing Ted Nugent to form the Damn Yankees with Jack Blades, Tommy Shaw and Michael Cartellone. Its first album featured the hit song "High Enough," which went multi-platinum in the US. In 1995, Nugent returned to a solo career and started pursuing other passions as well. Ted Nugent has hosted several reality television shows, written three books about hunting, funded the Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids, appeared as a character on The Simpsons, made numerous appearances on Larry King Live and serves on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association. Ted Nugent is also a passionate hunter.
