(September 5, 2007)—Sometimes controversial always colorful Waco rocker Ted Nugent has wrapped up his summer tour and has launched his first new album in five years, “Love Grenade”
“When you hear it, you're gonna just smile, close your eyes and go, 'Nugent!' It's such a classic piece of what we were brought up on,” the transplanted Motor City Madman told Billboard Magazine.
Nugent release his first solo album in 1975, but he first attracted attention as frontman of the Amboy Dukes, and the new release includes an old standard, “Journey to the Center of Your Mind,” which the Dukes recorded in the late 1960s.
“The Amboy Dukes were the quintessential garage band. I wanted to play homage to the privilege of somehow landing in that camp,” Nugent told Billboard.
Nugent’s summer tour started in June in Fort Wayne, Ind. and ended Monday in Pueblo, Colo. where he performed at the Colorado State Fair.
