Personalities | Ted Nugent | Seventies | Rock

(Guitar, singer-songwriter, b. 1949)

Singer, guitarist and hirsute oddball Nugent was an unlikely axe hero, his outlandish stage act captured on 1978’s platinum-selling Double Live Gonzo! He served his apprenticeship in Chicago’s psychedelic Amboy Dukes before going solo in 1976, his biggest hit coming the following year with the riff-heavy ‘Cat Scratch Fever’. An avid game hunter, Ted (who does not drink, smoke or do drugs) was an active supporter of the National Rifle Association and remains an outspoken personality today.
