Good Clean Fun: An Interview with Ted Nugent

Glenn O'Brien, High Times, Summer 1977

A Ted Nugent concert is an incredible musical experience, but that's just the beginning. While Ted and the boys are churning out some of the loudest, fastest and most furious sounds ever heard, the audience isn't just sitting there. It's going nuts dancing, humping, jumping, screaming, throwing fireworks, pumping fists in the air, setting fires and generally having a ball. It might look like mass psychosis, but it's really just a lot of energetic kids kicking out the jams. And helping them do that is what Ted is there for. He thinks it's good clean fun.
