Solo Career
By 1975, Nugent had disassociated himself with the Amboy Dukes and decided to pursue a solo career. Now recording with the Epic Records label, he released his first solo album, Ted Nugent, featuring the hit singles "Stranglehold" and "Hey Baby." In 1977, Nugent recorded his most successful album to date: Cat Scratch Fever. Eventually selling more than 3 million copies, the LP included the now-classic rock anthems "Cat Scratch Fever," "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard," and "Out of Control." In the early 1980s, Nugent’s popularity began to dwindle. He retreated from the spotlight for a few years before releasing two relatively successful albums, Penetrator (1984) and Little Miss Dangerous (1986)

Often called The Madman, Ted's tongue is where his music should be at times, nevertheless, I love his music. I discovered him via his original band The Amboy Dukes.

Ted was a madman in his peak. Saw him live on his Scream Dream tour. I remember him playing “the great white buffalo” (Amboy Dukes) in that concert. I was 20 at the time and had not heard that song or knew of the Amboy Dukes.
