Ten Most Underappreciated Classic Rock Artists- Amboy Dukes [VIDEOS]
“What came first the chicken or the egg?” The question of the day when it comes to The Amboy Dukes and maybe between the two of us we can figure it out.
Big Question here did The Amboy Dukes make their place in music because Ted Nugent was their lead guitarist/vocalist or did Ted Nugent make his mark because he was a member of the Amboy Dukes?
A very distinctive sound in the psychedelic/progressive hard rock genre with a pretty long run: 1964-1975, however; after Ted left to go solo the band faded into music history.
In 2000 they had a reunion (without Ted) produced an album but it never charted. The original Dukes performed together only once since 1975 and that was at the Detroit Music Awards in 2009.
Their album, ‘Journey To The Center Of The Mind’ is available on CD, Vinyl and MP3.
