Theodore "Ted" Nugent (born December 13, 1948) (aka "The Nuge", "Uncle Ted", "Sweaty Teddy", "Theodocious Atrocious" and "The Motor City Madman") is a hard rock guitarist from Detroit, Michigan, originally gaining fame as a member of the Amboy Dukes, and recently gaining fame (and notoriety) for his support for hunting and conservative political views.
