Charleton Heston, Jr.
Ladies and gentlemen, this week you are the luckiest rock 'n' roll fans in the world. The "Motor City Madman" is coming to town to "Sacrifice the White Buffalo." We are getting a rare audience with quite possibly the most over-the-top, misogynistic, bow-hunting, guitar-shredding, loin cloth-clad rocker that ever rode the feedback wave from Detroit into rock legend. Ted Nugent is in town, and no teenage girl or wild animal is safe. The Nuge's career stretches way back to 1968 when, as a member of the Amboy Dukes, he had a huge psychedelic hit with "Journey to the Center of the Mind"still a toe-tapper almost 40 years later. In 1975 Ted went solo and created some amazing guitar-heavy classic-rock tracks such as "Stranglehold," an almost nine-minute long groovefest that can turn any gathering into a make-out party instantly. But Nugent's most popular song has got to be "Cat Scratch Fever," a none-too-subtle ode to "getting it on." Ted may not be the best guitarist in the game and he may not have the best singing voice in the world of rock, but if you go to a Ted Nugent concert, you will definitely be entertained...and maybe you'll join the NRA before you leave. See the Nuge 10:30 p.m. Friday at Billy Bob's Texas, 2520 Rodeo Plaza in Fort Worth. Visit ticketmaster.com.
