A Message From Tedquarters

Friday, July 25, 2014

tedI am writing to you in regards to the picture of Ted nugent, wearing the aboriginal head dress. I would appreciate if you would please take down the photo of Ted wearing the aboriginal head dress with a bow n arrow and gun in his hands …I find this very disrespectful and insulting to my cultural back round. I feel with Ted recent out burst of racism and the picture I stated with the head dress, that he is trying to convey aboriginals as he quoted " unclean vermin". I will not stand for this kind of blatant racism…


Greetings from Tedquarters.

Mr. Nugent has a long history of working with a wide variety of Native American Tribes across our great country. He has never used the term unclean vermin to describe Native Americans.  On the contrary, Ted has been an honored guest at many tribal meetings, has worked with Native American youth, and was humbled to be inducted into the Strongheart Society by the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyenne and Arapahoe Tribes.

Video premiere: Everything Matters

Friday, July 25, 2014

1406302748000-Jenny-Risher-Photography3Ted Nugent calls "Everything Matters" from his new SHUTUP&JAM! album a "grooving, classic R&B song."

The song's sepia-toned video, premiering at USA TODAY, gives fans a good, long look at the guitarist's beloved Gibson Byrdland and his rhythm section, bassist Greg Smith and drummer Greg Brown. Derek St. Holmes, whose history with Nugent goes back to 70s hits like Stranglehold and Cat Scratch Fever, returns to sing lead.

Nugent says the song and its groove were inspired by R&B greats like Wilson Pickett, James Brown and Otis Redding, as well as Detroit-based rockers Mitch Ryder and Wayne Cochran.

NUG_PennsPeakBy James Wood

Guitarist, hunter and American advocate Ted Nugent is certainly no stranger to the backwoods of northeastern Pennsylvania. In fact, a recent stop at Penns Peak in Jim Thorpe a few years ago became the setting for Nugent's 2011 live CD/DVD Ultralive Ballisticrock. Folks around these parts know that when Uncle Ted's in town (like he was last night at Penns Peak) - attendance is mandatory!
