Ted Nugent - Self Titled

Hooray for classic rock! I've taken a lot of flack over the years for enjoying the work of one Ted Nugent. He's a little bit out there, and one of my friends would go so far as to call the guy "an inbred hick" - but say what you will - he made some good music. This was his first album ever made on the solo side. After he left Amboy Dukes, he went solo in a big way with this release back in 1975. Uncle Ted has to be in the discussion for Top 15 guitarists of all time too. He really puts down some tasty riffs on pretty much every record I've ever heard. Currently, Ted does all sorts of crazy television hunting shows, has a cookbook and seems like he's always out there toting a weapon and talking about how great it is. Nugent seems to be one of those quiet great selling artists too. A few of his albums are multi-platinum - but no one really seems to notice. I personally only own 1 of his records, but I do enjoy almost all of them. This isn't even the one I own, but it has probably his greatest song on it. Maybe you could focus on just getting a greatest hits record by the Nuge, if you're not a huge fan. But check this one out, I think if you like rock - you'll really enjoy at the very least the Top 3!
