Terrible Ted and his Ten Fingers of Doom
Went to the Clark County Fair and was able to see The Motor City Madman himself, Mr. Ted Nugent, for the low low price of $8 last night. The man may be 56 years old, but he still rocks hard! Very energetic.
He opened with Free For All, then played such classics as Dog Eat Dog, Baby Please Don't Go, Soul Man, Fred Bear (he did this song brilliantly), Hey Baby, Stranglehold, Great White Buffalo, and everyone's favorite, Kiss my *ss.
He played his Gibson Byrdland for much of the show, but occasionally played what appeared to be a PRS, and I think I saw a Fender snuck in there for a few tunes.
Man that guy still rocks! For being just a little county fair show, he played with some serious intensity and appeared to be having a great time. Definatly $8 well spent.
And quite frankly I admire the guy for being outspoken. Lot's of people don't agree with him on all of his views, but he doesn't back down and sticks to his guns (or bows if you will).
And any show where Ted Shoots a Bow and Arrow at Saddam is a good show.
"I got a woman, stay drunk all the time!"
i've seen ted 4 or 5 times, he definatly rocks
I saw him back in about 1978, the guy is NUTS, but he can put on one hell of a show!! I saw Savoy Brown this spring in a tiny theater with maybe 150 people, that was awsome, and they are still Excellent also. Its amazing who you can catch in a small venue :D -the dog
I saw Teddy in 1984 and again a few years later. It is SOOOO hard to believe that man does not do drugs or drink alcohol! He is just nuts! (and AWESOME!)
The only time I got to see Ted Nugent was at concert called Super Sunday back in 1980 or so.
I don't remember all the bands, but Heart was one of the other big acts.
Ted made his intro by swinging onto stage like Tarzan. He was a madman and his playing was excellent.
He pretty much has dissapeared over the years (or have kept very low key), until I saw an episode of "That Seventies Show" that featured Ted as himself.
He is an avid NRA supporter now and has made several hunting videos. He is REAL big into hunting!
As for Ted's intros when I saw him in the late 1980's he walked out on stage with a blonde woman on one arm and a brunette on the other and a HUGE smile on his face ! Then a redhead woman cam out and handed him his guitar. ALL the women were scantily clad! (sorry I know this isn't politically correct but it did happen almost 20 years ago !)
Well, it was the 70,s after all My favorite ted quote: "you can't grill it till ya kill it" Ted is quite a piece of work
He used to have himself droped off up in the woods in the Canadian wilderness by helicopter for 2 weeks every year with nothing but a knife. ( he may still do it)
