TED NUGENT Says That He Never Stopped Rocking

TED NUGENT recently told The Daily Herald that he blames his feverish pursuits of other interests for his inability to release more of his original music to the masses.

"You know, my life is so diverse," he said. "And each diversionary tactic that I pursue, it's not a take it or leave it proposition. Everything I do is very passion-oriented. I just don't do anything that I'm casual about — whether it's writing and inspiring the American dream upgrade, or challenging politicians in the media or being involved in charities, churches, schools and hospital activities or my law enforcement training or my booking and guiding and outfitting of hunting adventures, these are die-hard passions of mine.

"It's impossible (for me) to release an album every six months. God knows I could write one," Nugent said. "I never find the time to record them because my passions that inspired me to create are taking my time that would allow me to capture the creations. It may seem like a two-edged sword, but it's all used for positive thrusting, I promise you that."

Nugent, who is spending his summer on the road opening concerts for ZZ TOP along with doing some scattered headlining dates, said any appearances of a creative lull are highly deceiving.

"I think it's important to mention right here, that I'm constantly creating this new music," Nugent said. "I wrote a song last week aptly titled 'Still Alive And Well' that is just a scorcher, and if I dare say, the greatest guitar lick song that I've ever made, a song called 'Bridge Over Troubled Daughters'.

"You've got to hear this 'Bridge Over Troubled Daughters' lick," the guitarist said, asserting that his new song surpasses even the monumental riffage of his most famous tune, "Stranglehold". "It's just over the top, man. I love it." Read more.
