Ted Nugent
Motor City Mayhem/Sweden Rocks
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: 17 January, 2014
Playing time: 01:47:15

The controversial American patriot, guitarist, singer and hunter Ted Nugent, is an multi-artist who has strong opinions that can be perceived as extremely radical, sometimes for fun, sometimes deadly serious, the opinions diverse! 'Uncle Ted' is a man that seems to have energy in maximum overflow and he is the best frontman a band can wish for.

However, we are offered two live albums from the great axeman. Armoury Records re-releases 'Motor City Mayhem', which was recorded in Detroit on Independence Day in 2008, and it marked Ted Nugent's 6,000th concert, after 40-plus years performing professionally! That averages about 140 shows per year since he first started touring regularly with The Amboy Dukes back in 1967. 'Motor City Mayhem' was released in 2009. The second disc 'Sweden Rocks' was of course recorded at Sweden Rock Festival 2008 and was released the same year.

Anyhow, he give us an impressive tracklist on both of these albums and I was personally present on the Sweden Rock consort in 2008; it was a hot summer day and the madman was in a great mood. Ted is a true American rock n roll artist and he's delivering a spectacular live show every time he enters the stage. His guitar skills are amazing and his machine gun mouth is very entertaining.

If you don't have these two albums in your Ted Nugent collection, this is a nice offer.
