What does Kitty have to say?


 


Are you ready for the Nuge?

I was a little surprised when I heard that Ted Nugent was coming to Madison to play the Capitol Theater at the Overture Center. For one thing, I don't think he'll be sporting a Wisconsin 14 shirt, like The Nightwatchman Tom Morello might when he comes to Madison in September. The last time I saw Ted Nugent (yes, I've seen him twice) he opened for KISS at the Kohl Center. Neither his music, or his political ranting were my personal cup of tea. (But I did think it was kind of awesome when he shot an arrow off a specially made bow-guitar). At one time, I thought I could have been friends with Ted Nugent. There used to be a cool hippie bar in Stevens Point called the Yacht Club, which had a very big picture of the bar's owner posing with none other than Ted Nugent, holding up some kind of dead game. (Pheasants, perhaps?) Ted and Ray apparently were hunting buddies. Now I've got nothing against hunting, and any friend of Ray, I thought, could be a friend of mine. The first time I saw Ted was during a Damn Yankees concert at the Coliseum in 1990. I had won the tickets, and had no idea Ted was even in the band. "Why is this band doing Cat Scratch Fever?" I wondered. When I was in the restroom, I was chatting with some other concertgoers, and pointed out that I had been unaware that Nugent was in the band, and said "I grew up listening to his music."  To that, another gal asked.."How old ARE you?" Sigh. Here's Ted with his old band, the Amboy Dukes. Who knew where his journey would take him back then?
