Ma Nugent Remembered Tribute Concert

June 11 th, 2006, Durty Nellies, Palatine, Illinois

   On June 11th, 2006 I produced and put on a memorial concert for the late Marion "Ma" Nugent the late great rock 'n' roll mother of rock 'n' Mad Man outdoorsman and hunting advocate Ted Nugent. "Ma" as she was affectionately referred, to lived in Palatine, Illinois from 1967 until 1988 when she succumbed to cancer. A rock 'n' roll advice columnist for the Illinois Entertainer "Ma" was a celebrity known at home and abroad. Her characteristic smile and charm and acceptance of all things rock 'n' roll resonated in the heart's of an entire generation of rock 'n' roll fans everywhere, especially in a time when such values were largely ignored. I seek to remember Ma for all she accomplished, her for her loving charismatic ways of passing on that love to the rock 'n' roll community as well as to her own hometown of Palatine. Durty Nellies in conjunction with Eric will host the placing of a rock monument as a memorial to the beloved mother of rock just outside their establishment on 180 N. Smith Street in Palatine.
