Sammy Hagar To Guest on New Ted Nugent Album
If you don’t already know by now, Ted Nugent is rarely at a loss for words. But this time, instead of wading into the political arena on any number of topics, he shared some exciting news about his upcoming studio record, including the fact that Sammy Hagar is a featured guest.
Of course, word about the new record, to be called ‘SHUTUP&JAM!,’ appeared earlier this month from none other than Nugent himself. On his Facebook page today (April 25), Nugent said that the album is ready to be mixed and credit the musicians who worked with him in the studio.
Well, the fiery dust has settled on yet another soulmusic orgy, and the recording of what, my 40th or so LP “SHUTUP&JAM!” masterpiece now moves on to the critical ultraFUN mixing stage. Dear God in heaven what a damn riot this is! The piss & vinegar firestorm of energy, spirit, passion & insane FUN recording with these monster virtuosos is indescribable. I am SO blessed to again be surrounded by ultimate musical masters! A huge Nuge SALUTE to Mick Brown, Greg Smith, Derek St Holmes, Sammy Hagar, Johnny Bee Badanjek, Jon Kutz, Andy & Tim Patalan, Michael Lutz & my entire team for what we all shiveringly xalt to be the best music of our lives! Seriously! Outrageous claim if ever there was, but we believe! 15 killer MotorCity Souljams that make up SHUTUP&JAM will be unleashed this summer. Details forthcoming here on facebook & tednugent.com. The beast snarls in its cage. Unleashing asap!
While he does not include a firm date for release, ‘Shut Up & Jam’ will be his first studio outing since 2007’s ‘Love Grenade.’ Smith, St. Holmes and Brown will all be joining Nugent on the road for 29 American dates spread throughout July and August. Visit his website for full information.
