Ted Nugent was bornon 13 December 1948 in Redford, American, is American singer. Theodore Anthony Nugent, better known to his fans as Ted Nugent, is a hard rock guitarist cum singer who rose to fame during the 1970s with his hits like ‘Stranglehold’, ‘Cat Scratch Fever’, and ‘Wango Tango’. Even as a child he showed a deep interest in music and began playing instruments by the time he was six. He began his career in music by playing guitar for the hard rock band The Amboy Dukes. He served as the band’s lead guitarist for many years before breaking off in order to pursue a solo career. He could not have asked for a better start—his debut solo album, the self-titled ‘Ted Nugent’ produced several hit singles and went multi-platinum in the U.S. Along with bassist Rob Grange and drummer Clifford Davies, Ted went on to release ‘Free-for-All’ and ‘Cat Scratch Fever’, which established him as a solo rock star. Much loved for his style of playing hard rock, he credits musicians like Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton, Frank Zappa and Jeff Beck for his inspiration. It is a well-known fact that Ted plays awesome music, but what separates him from various other rock stars is his complete abstinence from alcohol and drugs. He loves hunting and has authored several books on hunting.
