Ted Nugent Is Writing A Memoir

July 27, 2023

Legendary rockstar Ted Nugent was a guest of Ultimate Classic Rock and the only thing you need to know is that Uncle Ted is writing a memoir, “My son Rocco, who is just a genius, he’s on the road with me. Rocco Winchester Nugent and I are collaborating. You know, I’ve written three New York Times bestsellers, and I wrote ’em. I mean, I sat down and wrote the motherfuckers, man. It’s quite a chore. Holy shit. You’ve got to sit down for long periods of time and I’m really not good at that. So Rocco is sticking recorders in my face. By the way, we’re filming [my] whole ‘Adios Mofo’ [farewell tour]. We’re documenting the whole tour for all kinds of applications. Rocco has been having me reminisce about all of these stories. I have so many stories.”

Nugent continued, “So he’s transcribing all of my [stories] and we’re going to create two books. One is ‘Uncommon Sense’, because I live a beautifully perfected common-sense lifestyle. That’s the [first book], because it seems to be on the endangered species list out there — but it’s not. It’s alive and well. Then we’re also documenting my 75 years of being clean and sober, riding the flame-throwing middle finger into that not-so-quiet night. Boy, that’s a statement, that should be the front of the book, shouldn’t it? That book will be titled ‘Stranglehold’. I’m going into all of the gory details. It will be unabridged and my God, what an adventure I’ve had. Holy shit.”

Nugent made The New York Times’ bestseller list in 2008 with his book “Ted, White, And Blue: The Nugent Manifesto”. He made the list with “God, Guns, And Rock ‘N’ Roll” in 2000.

Nugent’s 1975 self-titled debut album was certified double platinum in the U.S. and has reportedly sold over 40 million albums.

His latest album, “Detroit Muscle”, was released in April 2022 and Nugent’s currently on his “Adios Mofo ’23” farewell tour. 

Do you think Nugent’s memoir will make The New York Times bestseller list?
