Recognized as the world's leading guitar showman, Ted Nugent's no-holds-barred career spans five decades of multiplatinum hits from the ground breaking Amboy Dukes' "Journey to the Center of the Mind," to classics like "Stranglehold" and "Cat Scratch Fever," Damn Yankees chartbuster "High Enough" and cult classic "Fred Bear."
The Motor City Madman's second solo slab, 1976's Free For All, was produced by Tom Werman (Cheap Trick, Blue Öyster Cult, Mötley Crüe) and features a then-unknown Meat Loaf on vocals in place of the recently departed Derek St. Holmes. Home to the blistering cuts "Free For All," "Dog Eat Dog," "Writing on the Wall" and "Street Rats," Free For All broke into the Top 25 on the Billboard 200 and served as The Nuge's first platinum solo effort.
Nugent soon became known as the hardest-working and top-grossing gunslinger of the mid- and late-'70s, equaled for excitement only by mighty peers such as Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin. For T-shirted kids who worked hard all day and wanted their rock 'n' roll to blow their hair back and pound their eardrums through their skulls, Nugent was, as the song says, "Just What The Doctor Ordered."
