Ted Nugent

Motor City Madman Ted Nugent

 

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Wild Rock Coming To the Chip
With a guitar tone that is as rich and recognizable as a Harley-Davidson's exhaust, Motor City Madman Ted Nugent will bring his signature wild rock and stinging guitar licks to the Legendary Buffalo Chip on Thursday, Aug. 10 during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.  Nugent will join a reunited James Gang with Joe Walsh.

Rocker's penchant for controversy perfect for Sturgis Rally
Throughout his lengthy career, guitar wild man Ted Nugent has reveled in the controversy that always seems to follow in his path. There's no denying his exceptional talent on the six- string, his knack for penning arena rock anthems, or his standing as one of rock's top live acts. 

Sturgis Rally Concert Perfection…Here kitty kitty kitty
With the release of 1977's Cat Scratch Fever (which spawned the hit single title track), Nugent and his band has been one of the top rock bands in the U.S. He abandoned his solo career briefly in the late 1980s to join Damn Yankees with Styx guitarist/singer Tommy Shaw and Night Ranger bassist Jack Blades.

Sturgis Rally Music Man Deeply Involved in Politics – FREEDOM!
In addition to music, Nugent is involved in politics, hosting a number one morning radio show in Detroit, has his own hunting camp and issues instructional videotapes (as well as the Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild PBS video series), owns his own hunting supply store, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association, writes columns regularly for a number of different magazines, and even sells his very own beef jerky (called Gonzo Meat Biltong)! In 2001, he  penned his own autobiography, God, Guns, & Rock n' Roll.
