Guys, now usually I
just give you the back cover text but first a little heart-to-heart. I
loved doing this book. Ted was my first concert back in ’76 and the guy
just makes me happy. As well, Ted’s an amazing interview and one of the
ones I had with him, is like one of the most outrageous I’ve ever seen,
and it’s all here. Plus other chats with him, lots of Derek, and what
was quite possibly the last interview dear Cliff Davies gave before his
suicide in April ’08. But dudes, there’s the legendary David Krebs, Lew
Futterman, a couple of Amboy Dukes, Don Branker of Cal Jam, lotsa Tom
Werman, some Charlie, Rob, lots of research... if this ain’t my best
book, then certainly it’s second to the BOC or tied with the UFO. And
it’s long – 292 pages, with the pictures not too big, and there’s like
200 of those.
So yeah, as the back cover blurb sez… Ted Nugent... hear the Whackmaster
The Tedinator, Deadly Tedly, The Whackmaster or simply The Nuge...
guitarin’ Detroit gunslinger Ted Nugent goes by many names, but his
riff-mad rock ‘n’ roll speaks for itself.
This is the detailed story of the man’s music (and emphatically not the
rest of it), from the Amboy Dukes through to his bloodthirsty revival
marked by the Craveman and Love Grenade albums—all men play
on ten, indeed!
But above else, it is the story of his classic, celebrated albums with
Epic Records, namely Ted Nugent, Free For All, Cat Scratch Fever,
Double Live Gonzo!, Weekend Warriors, State Of Shock, Scream Dream
and Intensities In 10 Cities... all so much furious fun we hadda
name ‘em all.
Telling the Tedly tale, offering all manner of fresh perspective in
interviews with the author, is Ted himself, along with major players in
the story such as Derek St. Holmes, Rob Grange, Cliff Davies, Lew
Futterman, David Krebs and Tom Werman.
Immerse yourself in Martin’s celebrated record by record analysis and
emerge out the other end of this thick yet fast-paced tome as a renewed
soldier in Ted’s army. Still alive and well... still raising hell!

This book is now updated and expanded to include a full examination of the
Whackmaster’s Shut Up & Jam! Album (but only
to that point). The new 283-page book uses the same awesome Rich Galbraith
cover shot and is now called Motor City
Madhouse: Going Gonzo with Ted Nugent. This is what I will be sending. The
original edition is now all gone.
