Legendary rocker Ted Nugent tells Classic Rock Revisited in a new interview that he is prearing to enter the studio to begin recording his long-awaited new album — his first since 2007’s “Love Grenade”.
“God knows we are eating our hearts out and busting our ass to get back into the studio to capture the new songs I am creating these days,” Nugent says. “I am confident there will be a new killer record [as soon as possible].”
Nugent‘s upcoming CD will feature contributions from vocalist/guitarist Derek St. Holmes, who rejoined the Nugent band in 2011 after fifteen years apart.
“Derek and the boys and I are humping madly to jam up a storm, working on my new tunes,” Nugent says. “I am certain real hard rock soul music lovers will love them.”
In 1975, at only 22 years of age, St. Holmes found himself traveling the world and playing to sold-out audiences in U.S. and European cities. He remained in Nugent‘s band until 1978 and can be heard on such Nugent classics as 1975’s “Ted Nugent”, 1976’s “Free-For-All”, 1977’s “Cat Scratch Fever” and the classic 1978 album “Double Live Gonzo!”
After leaving the the Ted Nugent band in 1978, St. Holmes returned for a brief period in 1982 and 1987. In 1995, he helped co-write the critically acclaimed Ted Nugent CD “Spirit Of The Wild”, but left again after touring to support the release.
