Nugent  to ‘rock’ Palatine  in August

Posted Friday, July 20, 2007

In less than two weeks, Ted Nugent will appear outside a popular restaurant and bar in downtown Palatine to honor his late mother.

The “Motor City Madman” is to arrive in Palatine Aug. 1 at 5 p.m. outside Durty Nellie’s for the dedication of a rock ’n’ roll monument to his late mother, Marion “Ma” Nugent.

Local musician Eric Kinkel has spearheaded the project and arranged for a 4-ton stone to be unveiled that day in front of the Palatine eatery and music pub at 180 N. Smith St.

“Ma” Nugent, as she was known to most, was a Palatine resident for 28 years. She was an avid supporter of local musicians and her own son’s career.

She died in 1988 and Kinkel, a family friend, says she never got the proper tribute.

“I look forward to seeing this all come together,” he said.

A rock was chosen as a metaphor for the music she loved best: rock ’n’ roll.

It will be sandblasted and have a bronze, engraved plaque.

Kinkel says it will be considered a focal point in downtown Palatine. Artists and landscapers have donated time and materials for the project.
