The Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent, brought his Great White Buffalo Tour to the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park with no holds barred … and lots of M-16s and spare guitars adorning the stage.

From the first tune, “Gonzo,” Nugent delivered his brand of all-American, high-octane rock ‘n’ roll spotlighting his timeless power-rock hits like “Stranglehold,” “Cat Scratch Fever,” “Free For All,” “Just What The Doctor Ordered” and “Great White Buffalo.”

Talk about explosive, high-energy guitar work and a power-laden band – featuring drummer Mick Brown, bassist Greg Smith and prodigal guitarist-vocalist Derek St. Holmes – that was “in the groove,” to quote Uncle Ted himself!

Song of the Week: Journey To The Center of Your Mind

December 11th, 2009, 1:10 pm by Sara

Sunday December 13 is Ted Nugent’s birthday. Say want you want about him (okay, I’ll say it…he’s a pompous ass) but Journey to the Center of Your Mind by the Amboy Dukes is a great, great song.

“…how happy life would be if all of mankind
would take the time to journey to the center of the mind.”

(And I wouldn’t mind having one of those sparkly coats.)
