Ted Nugent

Born: December 13, 1948
Detroit, MI, USA

Ted Nugent taught himself how to play guitar at the age of 8 years old. He was joining bands by the time he was a teenager, and soon formed the Amboy Dukes, which started as a garage band but ended up a major attraction in the midwest, with a record deal and contract. But, dissatisfied with his position in the Dukes, Nugent split to pursue a solo career. He has gone through several band members during his solo career, and has earned a reputation for being hard to work with. But, in 1989, Nugent joined with Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades to form Damn Yankees, a highly successful band that had more than one radio hit. All in all, in his later years, Nugent has become much more concerned with his conservation and pro-hunting causes than rock and roll. You can catch him droning on about this on his morning radio show in Detroit.
