Biography

Ted Nugent was one of the more polarizing figures in popular music for over five decades, garnering hit records and devoted fans for his ferocious guitar playing and testosterone-soaked rock paeans to dirty good fun, while also earning an equal share of praise and brickbats for his ultra-conservative stance on hunting, gun ownership, liberalism and any other subject he deemed worthy of his incendiary comments. Politics aside, Nugent was a genuinely thrilling performer, capable of whipping a crowd to a frenzy with blazing renditions of his biggest hits, including "Cat Scratch Fever," "Stranglehold" and "Dog Eat Dog" as well as a barrage of profane stage patter and off-stage hijinks that cemented his status as a rock wildman on par with Jerry Lee Lewis, Keith Moon and other outlaw figures. Though the 1980s and 1990s were a largely fallow period for Nugent, save for his brief tenure in the rock supergroup Damn Yankees, the new millennium saw him return to prominence on the strength of his gonzo heritage, as well as political and social statements that placed him to the right of even the most extreme conservatives. Nugent's beliefs endeared him to groups like the National Rifle Association, which made him a member of its board of directors, and talk show hosts like Glenn Beck, who called upon him to generate free publicity with his outrageous comments. Unfortunately, Ted Nugent's taste for political bombast often outshone his undeniable talent as a devoted practitioner of rock-n-roll at its loudest and wildest.
