Q103 had the chance to speak with Ted Nugent recently and we covered a bunch of topics including his upcoming show at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, his career, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he even addressed his haters.

It was great chatting with The Nuge who pulled no punches in this 18 minute interview. See the full interview above. No matter what your opinion of Ted, you can’t deny the guy rocks! Nugent first gained fame as lead guitarist with the band The Amboy Dukes, who scored a hit in 1968 with “Journey to the Center of the Mind”. He would then embark on a solo career with a string of hits in the 1970’s including “Stranglehold”, “Cat Scratch Fever”, and “Wango Tango”.

The current lineup of Ted Nugent’s band features Ted Nugent on lead guitar/vocals, Greg Smith on bass, and Jason Hartless on drums. Tickets for Ted Nugent with guest: Derek Day Monday, Aug. 14 6:30pm at The Chance are on sale through ticketweb.com and The Chance box office at 845-471-1966.
