Ted Nugent, Eric Kinkel shake on the
success of the day.
Ted greets the crowd!
Wednesday, August 1st, 2007 I successfully accomplished creating
and finally erecting
a 4 ton rock monument to the late Marion "Ma" Nugent,
beloved mother of legendary rock-n-roll MotorCity MadMan Ted
Nugent. The memorial tribute stands just outside Durty
Nellie's eatery and pub in downtown Palatine Illinois. E.K.
A day to remember
Pride is a wonderful word but it can't come close to describe
the over whelming feeling I have after finally erecting the Ma
Nugent monument. I am still a glow with tender memories of
accomplishing what my heart always knew was the right thing to
do!. In retrospect, I have succeeded in building a rock-n-roll
memorial in honor of Chicago's only rock -n- roll mom who
ever lived. Forever in stone, this monument will always be a
physical manifestation of the love Ted shares everyday with his
mom. Historic and unique, the Ma Nugent monument will always
stand as a reminder that Ma Nugent was an important part of our
community and a source of inspiration to many in her home town
and through out the mid west.
Ideas begin... mission
At a Naperville show in mid 2006 I discussed with Ted
putting together a multi page
tribute to his mom on my website. A few months later it was
complete. Afterwards I decided it was
time to go one step further and honor Ma in a
monumental way. Ted and I discussed the details and I
June 11th I held a Ma Nugent remembered concert at Durty
Nellie's featuring Dirty Dan Buck & The Boyzz along with
Deluxury. I succeeded in bringing to the fore the memory of
Chicago's most memorable rock -n- roll mom. Palatine business
owner and landscaper Paul Munagian of Class
landscaping came backstage to say he would
donate the boulder. The event was a success and I managed to get much media
attention through newsprint and radio interviews. In the
coming months Ted's heavy schedule changes and a series of
personal tragedies in my own life, lead Ted and I to decided to postpone
the monument until I could easily move forward. A year later I
contacted Ted and we set a date of August 1st, just prior to his
evening performance at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan,
The Monument finis
