"Ma" Nugent, as she was known to many, was the mother of
well known rock 'n roll motor city madman Ted Nugent. A
wild master of the guitar known for his spirited energy and
all out, no holds barred brutally uninhibited rock 'n'
roll. Ted Nugent is a name known at home and around the
world. He has risen to the top as a self made man of the
"alpha" strain. An avid, passionate hunter and outdoorsman,
Ted is also well known for his outspoken and highly
articulate manner when he advocates for the truths of hunting

rock guitar, Ted remains an icon for a generation of rock 'n'

"Ma" answered questions about everything rock 'n' roll, and
at times touched on a few social matters.
responses were refreshing, as she spoke in a manner which
transcended her own generation, often putting her self into the shoes of the writer. "Ma" would frequent local clubs and well-known concert venues to seek out
and encourage those with the same will and fortitude her son
Ted embraced. It was at the local club scene and abroad that
"Ma" became a visible icon and "Mother" to many. She

accompanied her presence.
"Ma" was a dear friend of mine. She often shared her

She was a Mother to many and a friend to all who
met her. I salute her memory
