The Motor City Madman.
Whatever you call him, Ted Nugent is one of rock ‘n’ roll’s great characters.
I mean, who would have thought that the guy who led the Amboy Dukes through one of the psychedelic era’s most acid-laced anthems (“Journey to the Center of Your Mind”) would end up as a staunchly right-wing conservative?
From his reality TV series (“Surviving Nugent,” “SuperGroup”) to the books that he’s authored (“God, Guns & Rock and Roll,” “Ted, White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto”), the ever-outspoken guitarslinger has remained true to his often controversial, always uncensored point of view.
Most importantly, Nugent continues to crank it up and rock in his trademark take-no-prisoners fashion.
On Wednesday night (July 11), Ted Nugent leads his band – including guitar hero Derek St. Holmes, bassist Greg Smith and drummer “Wild” Mick Brown – into the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park for a stop on his current “Great White Buffalo” tour. Laura Wilde is slated to open the show at 8pm, and tix are $25 in advance; $27 at the door.
