Ted Nugent Rocks Sweden - The Motor City Madman Performs Live

Jun 7, 2008
The 2006 Sweden Rock Festival was a three day gig included such luminaries as Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Def Leppard, The Michael Schenker Group, Whitesnake and Ted Nugent.

'Sweden Rocks' is the recording of Ted Nugent's performance and has been released on both CD and DVD.

Variously described as 'over-the-top,' 'energetic,' and simply 'crazy,' his live performance provides all of those elements and then some.

For Sweden Rocks, Ted Nugent is back with typical energy - and on this occasion, he's part of a three-piece also containing drummer Mick Brown and bassist Barry Sparks (formerly with the Michael Schenker Group).

This live disc is Ted Nugent at his enthusiastic best. When you consider his energy, it is hard to believe he's been around for almost forty years - it's been 33 years since his debut album, imaginatively titled Ted Nugent.

Tracks like "Wango Tango" and "Free For All" are delivered with equal gusto and he's always been a master of stage talk too - although parental advisory is recommended at times!

Also included alongside his better known tracks is "Cat Scratch Fever" from his recent studio album Love Grenade.

A quintessential American hard rocker, Ted Nugent has more recently found that his 'other' pursuits have gathered as much press as his music.

A self-proclaimed 'outdoorsman,' hunter, political activist and spokesperson on behalf of The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, there appears to be no subject upon which he is not prepared to debate.

Despite this (and perhaps at times - it must be said - aided by this), it is his particular style of guitar playing that has grown a huge fanbase. And it's live where his trademark shotgun style is most appreciated. Despite partial hearing loss due to years of loud music, he still performs onstage like a man possessed.
