The Motor City Mad Man, Uncle Ted, the one and only Ted Nugent brought his blistering guitar licks and always raucous attitude to the brand new Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City this past Thursday! Some people may have other names for "The Nuge" but ask him if he cares? Trust me, he doesn't! Ted Nugent is about as wild a Rock&Roll'r you will ever see! From his racy songs to shooting flaming arrows across the stage, he's always been the one to march to the beat of his own gun fire. Time and politics have not slowed him down one bit! In fact, it's almost like throwing gas on a wild fire!!!
Ted took to the stage as a Trio band with a huge American flag draped in the background. But of course! Ted has never made a secret of his feelings on all things politics and social issues. The man loves America as much as he loves his guitar. You'll never be able to take either from him! Ted wasted no time shredding through several of his classic songs like Gonzo and the "love ballad" Wang Dang Sweet Poontang. In between songs, He took a few moments to express his views on politics, hunting and Rock&Roll. In true Nuge fashion, he did it with a great sense of humor!!! Not hat it's ever stopped him but some people get a little sensitive these days.
