Ted Nugent Net Worth $20 Million

Ted was raised in a Catholic household, and has mentioned in his interviews that his parents were very strict. Maybe the authoritarian upbringing formed his rough character that is known for the strict position against animal rights, advocacy of the right to bear arms as well as his anti-alcohol and anti-drug stances. On the other hand, Nugent is a very hard-working and ambitious person, who is known to have released more than 35 albums, sold more than 30 million records, and in the beginning of his career he was known to have organized more than 300 shows a year (1967–1973). Of course, all these efforts added much to the fame and the net worth of Ted Nugent. The musician says he was influenced by such outstanding personalities as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Frank Zappa, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels among others.

To begin with, Ted joined The Amboy Dukes band while still studying at high school. Soon, the band became very popular with their hits “The Amboy Dukes” (1967), “Journey to the Center of the Mind” (1968) and “Migrations” (1969). Then, Ted signed a contract with DiscReet Records, the label founded by Frank Zappa, and after a few releases including “Call of the Wild” (1973) and “Teeth Fang & Claw” (1974) the fans split into two groups, following either The Amboy Dukes or Ted Nugent. This caused many disagreements in the band, and Ted decided to pursue a solo career.

Since the beginning of his career he was very popular not only in USA but also Canada. The golden age of Ted’s career was the period from 1975 to 1981, when all the recordings released received certifications for sales, including “Ted Nugent” (1975), “Free-for All” (1976), “Cat Scratch Fever” (1977), “Weekend Warriors” (1978), “Double Live Gonzo!” (1978) “State of Shock” (1979) and “Scream Dream” (1980). All of them helped to increase the total size of Ted Nugent’s net worth considerably. Although later recordings were not certified for sales, almost all of them appeared in the Billboard Top 100. Ted Nugent is active up to date, despite the hearing loss he has suffered since 2005.

In addition to his career in the music industry, Ted Nugent has also made one in the media. Nugent starred in his show “Spirit of the Wild” (2001–2003), hosted the reality television series “Surviving Nugent” (2004) and was seen in the show “Super Group” (2006). He has appeared in various television series, such as “Miami Vice” (1986) and “Undeclared” (2001). As a guest he has been invited onto many shows, as “The Midnight Special” (1978), “Newton’s Apple” (1991), “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (2007).

More, Ted Nugent has added sums to his net worth as the author of books, including the best seller “God, Guns and Rock ‘n’ Roll” (2000) and many publications.

Concerning his private life, Ted Nugent has married twice, firstly to Sandra Jezowski (1970–1979) with whom he has two children. Since 1989, he has been married to Shemane Deziel.

# Quote
1 [on Wayne LaPierre of the National Rife Association] In the embarrassing culture war of politically correct denial that runs amok today, there is an American warrior, a common man who who represents common sense and self-evident truth, and he is Wayne LaPierre. On behalf of the millions of Americans who still believe in God-given, constitutionally guaranteed individual rights, Wayne stands firm against the insidious tsunami of dangerous anticonstitutional furor that would further infringe on our sacred Second Amendment. Wayne is a sledgehammer for truth, logic and freedom. He is cut from the same cloth as our forefathers who stood on the Concord bridge and risked all to give birth to a truly free, independent America. Wayne’s voice is the modern shot heard round the world.
2 I don’t pay to have my dirty work done for me. I do it myself.
3 I think you should ride the line between fatigue and chaos. The chaos keeps the energy level and spontaneity maximized, while fatigue is just over the edge, and you should try to avoid it.
4 My confidence level is insane. If there is one thing I am, it’s always right. I consider myself a true liberal. I am armed in order to stop good people being destroyed by bad people. Liberalism is assisting quality of life, whatever you may choose. I think that homosexuality is wrong. I think that people who drink, smoke and take drugs are doing wrong. But I’ll tell you how I judge people. The people that ran up those burning towers on September 11 were my heroes. And among those warriors who ran back to save their fellow human beings, you know what there were? Homosexuals. Smokers. Drinkers. People I wouldn’t agree with on numerous conduct levels. I judge people on this: are they in the asset column, or the liability column?
5 I say that I want the rape victim to shoot the rapist. All good people want rape to stop.
6 [on deer] They’re only interested in three things: the best place to eat, having sex and how quickly they can run away. Much like the French.
7 I visited Saddam Hussein‘s master war room. It was a glorious moment. It looked like something out of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977). I saw his gold toilet. I shit in his bidet.
8 [on Iraq] Our failure has been not to Nagasaki them.
9 [on Muzak] It’s an evil force in today’s society, causing people to lapse into uncontrollable fits of blandness. It’s been responsible for ruining some of the best minds of our generation.
10 Basically, I’m just an erector set looking for some volts.
11 You’ve got to kill it, before you grill it
