Ted Nugent, ‘She’s Gone’ (Featuring Sammy Hagar) – Exclusive Song Premiere
Ted Nugent fans have a lot to look forward to lately, what with a new album from the Motor City Madman due in July and songwriting already under way for the follow-up. But why wait? Ultimate Classic Rock has an exclusive premiere of some new Nugent right here and now.
We’re offering your first glimpse of Nugent’s new album, ‘ShutUp&Jam!,’ with the track ‘She’s Gone,’ featuring vocals from special guest Sammy Hagar. “When I first heard Ted’s demo of this song, I immediately responded with ‘I’m in,'” explained Hagar in a press release. “Ted’s ripping the guitar like the days of old…very inspiring to sing to a track like that — old-school blues riff, hard edged rock ‘n roll on fire!”
“My guitar has never gently weeped, but she does suckerpunch me mercilessly at regular intervals,” added Nugent. “‘She’s Gone’ is just another example of what we do together every day after I complete my ranch chores at home in Texas, and the MotorCity soulmusic slugfest erupts into spiritual love songs like this. Sammy Hagar said he wasn’t interested in writing or singing any more pop songs, so he fell in love with this masterpiece jammout instantly. Clearly Sammy and I deserve each other. And she’s gone.”
You can check out the track — which also features an appearance by Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels drummer Johnny ‘Bee’ Badanjek — via the video embedded at the top of this post, and keep your calendars marked for July 8, when ‘ShutUp&Jam!’ arrives in stores.
