The Music Makes Him Do It: An Exclusive Interview!

Thursday, November 15, 2018

By Ruben Mosqueda (KNAC.com)

Ted Nugent the ‘Motor City Madman’ as he’s often referred to, took time from his busy schedule [hunting as he says in this interview] to chat with KNAC.com. Over the course of his career Nugent has sold more than forty million albums and performed over 6,500 shows.

Ted Nugent has a new album due on November 9th titled The Music Made Me Do It, his follow up to the 2014 release Shutupandjam! He has added a nice bonus to the first pressing of the new album—A live concert DVD Live At Freedom Hill, featuring his current rhythm section bassist Greg Smith and drummer Jason Hartless. As a friend said, “Just wind him up and watch him go!” I did just that and Nugent exploded as if he had been fired out of a cannon. As I hung up the phone, a three point buck sprinted across the field in front of my house. Nugent released an album titled Spirit of The Wild, did he not?

Ted Nugent’s ‘Rocking America Again!’ Tour Stops at Orlando’s Plaza Live

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Ted’s been bringing the heat all summer with his Rockin America Again tour! William Clark for Music Enthusiast Magazine gave a rockin review of Ted’s show in Orlando this past July. Check out the excerpt below and read the full review and photos at MusicEnthusiastMag.com.

“Nuge, the 68 year old hard rock musician and political activist, remains a high energy performer. You can tell he’s still passionate about his craft as he swings the audience to his corner with spiels like “I know why you’re all here, to hear some of the greatest guitar riffs in the history of rock and roll. I know, cause I wrote ’em all.” Cue in that swinging riff to “Gonzo.”

To be fair, Ted could have unleashed his signature right-wing political views throughout the course of the night as I’ve seen before at a Nugent concert and the crowd would’ve eaten out of his hand; a good portion of the crowd were seen donning their own NRA and Trump-themed apparel, and broke out in applause when the Nuge mentioned how he gave all of his grand-kids machine guns and said he told security if anyone didn’t bring a firearm to the show to give ’em one.

And yet for the most part the performance was largely settled in high velocity rock and roll; Nugent’s patriotism shone brightest through his taste in stage props and the evening’s set opener.

Closing with a knockout rendition of “The Great White Buffalo/ Spirit of the Wild,” Ted Nugent and company rocked The Plaza Live in Orlando with fierce blues rock themes and that personality unlike any other.”
