"I think you should ride the line between fatigue and chaos. The chaos keeps the energy level and spontaneity maximized, while fatigue is just over the edge, and you should try to avoid it."

Starting Out

Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1948, Ted Nugent was only ten years old when he began to play professionally. He began to annually tour in 1967, with an average of 300 shows each year he has proven himself as one of the hardest working musicians around.

In 1965, he went to St. Viator High School and was part of the Amboy Dukes. They could often be found playing at The Cellar which was a teen dance club that was just outside of Chicago. They released Journey to the Center of the Mind as one of their first singles, followed by Migration. Both of these singles were sold on the Mainstream label and sold well.

In 1973, he signed up with Frank Zappa and his record deal DiscReet Records. It was here that they recorded Call of the Wild as well as Tooth Fang & Claw. It was on the second album that they released their popular song Great White Buffalo. They were beginning to make a name for themselves and establish a large fan base. Personnel changes happened with the band, causing them to nearly split up. They found themselves being called Ted Nugent & the Amboy Dukes.

Going Solo

In 1975, Ted Nugent left the Amboy Dukes and moved on to Epic Records for a solo career. That very same year, he released his self titled album, Ted Nugent with two albums to follow in the next two years. Free-For-All followed by Cat Scratch Fever. With these albums, Nugent saw several hit singles, such as the title track for his third album, Cat Scratch Fever. While touring for these albums, they released what became a multi platinum live album, Double Live Gonzo! After a couple of band members left and were replaced they found themselves with four more albums from the years 1978 to 1981.

From 1982 into 1986, he released several more solo albums that saw moderate success. As the 1980s came to a close, he formed the Damn Yankees. The band included Tommy Shaw from Styx for vocals and guitar, Jack Blades from Night Ranger for vocals and bass, as well as Michael Cartellone for drums and vocals. They were able to see great success with this band. They were able to sell five million albums, thanks to the highly free mp3 downloaded hit High Enough.

In 1995, Nugent went solo again with his album Spirit of the Wild. This album was well reviewed and brought him more solo success. He continued to release albums throughout the 1990s and was able to keep himself relevant.
