    Love him or hate him, that's a classic. I recently read a page on the web about the bass sound on that track. It's one of the great rock bass tones of all time. Mic'ed SVT and a Phase 90 through a DI, IIRC.

    Ted Nugent was in Austin a couple of years ago and sat in with Redd Volkaert's weekly Saturday afternoon gig at the Continental Club. Awesomeness insued!



    Love Ted Nugent...

    stanglehold is the only song of his that I like , political views aside he is a fine musician , tons of energy , but arrogant.

    That song is one of the rare circumstances where an extended guitar solo doesn't sound like self-gratifying wankery.

    And the two solos toward the beginning of the song are absolutely sick! I'm surprised that guy can even hear any more, as loud as those Fender amplifiers must have been. And that guitar which must have been a feedback monster.

    I was doing some looking around on YouTube, and discovered that Derek Holmes can still sing like he did back then. Pretty freaking amazing.

    I don't think Ted would be so well known if it wasn't for Derek and Rob Grange.

    If anyone's surprised by Ted recently, they've simply not been paying attention

    When I listen to Stranglehold, so do my neighbors across the street.

    Compare that guitar tone in the intro to what Edward Van Halen was getting on his first two records, four years after this tune was released.

    Terrible Ted was a real innovator.

    Hate the guy, love the player. Won floor seats to see him in '83 or so... just past his peak (mercifully pre-Damn Yankees), but he was something else live and impossibly loud.

    "Lot of hate in the world."

    No kidding....Roger Waters for example...

    Not a huge Nuge fan but that was worth it to see what Redd was gonna play!
