From the ground breaking Amboy Dukes' hit "Journey to the Center of the Mind," to solo classics like "Stranglehold" and "Cat Scratch Fever," Damn Yankees chartbuster "High Enough," and cult classic "Fred Bear," Ted Nugent's no-holds barred career has spanned an uncompromising five rewarding decades.
The Nuge's first solo outing followed the end of the Amboy Dukes and months of hardcore touring that had established him as an ax-man to be reckoned with. Many fans regard his 1975 self-titled solo effort, featuring singer/guitarist Derek St. Holmes, bassist Rob Grange and drummer Cliff Davies, as one of the best studio albums of Ted's heralded career.
With the release of Ted Nugent, the self-proclaimed Motor City Madman and god of gonzo guitar became not just a star but one of rock 'n' roll's icons. With radio playing the hell out of the eight-and-a-half minute opus "Stranglehold" and "Hey Baby," Ted Nugent vaulted into the Billboard Top 30, quickly went gold and eventually sold more than two million copies.
He 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."
