Detroit rock and roller Ted Nugent is on the road with a variety of names this summer — everyone from ZZ Top to Derek St. Holmes — playing casinos, amphitheaters and the Chicago House of Blues. In the midst of all the touring, the 62-year-old musician has revealed he’s actually a big fan of Motörhead.
“Love the Lem! Love that Motörhead!” he excitedly told The Other Paper, in reference to Motörhead frontman Lemmy. “Our VH1 Supergroup performed ‘Ace of Spades,’ and my fire-breathing guitar made it spectacularly angry and animal.”
On the subject of reality TV, Nugent says doing each show is simply a blast.
“Our award-winning Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild TV show on Outdoor Channel continues to obliterate all things status quo,” he said. “You gotta witness it as often as possible. Killer TV. Literally.”
No matter how you carve it, Nugent is here to stay, and he says this period of playing live is his best yet.
“I’m living way beyond the dream, baby!” he said. “Best rock season of my life, headed for the best hunting season of my life, family is great, spirit and attitude on fire.”
