With all of the uncertainties in the music industry over the past few decades, Ted Nugent has been one of the few artists you can count on. Amazingly, he’s been touring annually since 1967 and played over 6000+ concerts. His hard work and no-frills rock and roll has secured him a legion of devoted fans of all ages. The music industry has definitely changed, particularly over the last few years.

Born in Detroit Michigan 1948, Ted’s been rockin’ the free world over the last six decades releasing over 34 albums and 30+ million sold. Like many other rock stars have crashed and burned over the years, Ted attributes his musical stamina to wise choices he made early on. “Absolutely. I wisely identified the dangers of burnout way back in the 1960s watching the brain-dead hippies and beatniks poisoning themselves with drugs, alcohol and tobacco and bad food. I knew instinctively that if I were to honestly pursue my American Rock in Roll dream that I had to be absolutely healthy and aware of everything from never once taken a drug or even having alcohol. Among other things, he is a successful songwriter, singer, author, actor, and outdoorsman. As busy as he is with all of his artistic endeavors, he still makes time for a number of worthwhile charities.

When not authoring popular books like Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto and playing rock standards like “Wango Tango,” “Cat Scratch Fever,” “Dog Eat Dog” and “Stranglehold,” The Nuge is an unwavering voice for conservative causes and patriotism.

His high profile has afforded him opportunities to spread his political message. He’s spoken often about running for political office (governor of Michigan) and many have encouraged him to do so. There are many that feel that the country is circling the drain right now, screaming for someone with his abilities. Is now the time? “It certainly appears to be a critical time, thanks to the scourge of apathy that opened the doors for Obama and his disgusting Mao Tse Tung fan club. The entrenched corruption and vicious abuse of power as manifested by this administration is beyond the pale, and I pray with all my heart that we the people take back this great country from the grasp of such flagrant America haters in charge. I am in with all I’ve got.” Who does he like in 2012 for president? “Nobody at this moment, and that is scary.” Hmmm, Vote for Ted in the Blue, White and Red? It’s Ted All Day in the U.S.A.? You get the picture.

Love him or hate him, you’ve got to admire him for standing up for what he believes in. While there are those that disagree with him, there are many that are glad he’s saying it. He agrees. “Amen. The lunatic fringe will never get it. I shall carry on yet more intensely thank you.”
