Cleveland Free Times: Preview!
After 33 years in the spotlight, Ted Nugent has done more than make music. He's released 33 albums and sold more than 35 million of them. He's gained several nicknames, from the Nuge to Motor City Madman. He's written three best-selling books and contributed to outdoor magazines. And besides music, he's spreading his love of hunting as far as he can. So what's left? The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, of course. He isn't getting inducted, but Nugent doesn't need an excuse to perform a free concert. Since 1975, people have been listening to Nugent's brand of rock 'n' roll, coupled with his talent on the guitar. Today, his stance on certain controversial topics has gained him just as much attention as his music, but it hasn't slowed him down. He released his last album, Love Grenade, almost a year ago. And that was his first disc in five years. After almost four decades as a performer, Nugent has shown everyone that he plans to be around for a few more decades. The Burnt River Band opens at 7 p.m. at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1100 Rock and Roll Blvd., 216.781.7625). - Moseley
