Ted Nugent recently spoke on America’s Voice, revealing the two artists he believes could match his singing prowess. Reflecting on his journey, Nugent recounted a memory from his final tour, ‘Adios Mofo,’ where he nearly fainted after 32 consecutive show nights. Expressing his deep passion for music, he remarked:
“My inspiration comes from music. I resonate with the likes of Chuck Berry, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Motown’s Funk Brothers, and Little Richard, especially that iconic opening note.”
Upon playing his track ‘Wango Tango,’ his enthusiasm was palpable. He continued:
“It’s rare to find someone who can sing like that. Apart from me, there’s Little Richard and maybe Bon Scott. I once saw Sammy Hagar pull off a Little Richard. It’s just us three. My life has been a glorious musical journey for over seven decades.”
Previously, Nugent had listed out his top 11 album picks, prominently featuring Little Richard’s eponymous album. He praised the intros of ‘Good Golly Miss Molly,’ ‘Lucille,’ and ‘Tutti Fruitti’ as breathtakingly explosive.
