Ted was raised in a Catholic household, and has mentioned in his interviews that his parents were very strict. Maybe the authoritarian upbringing formed his rough character that is known for the strict position against animal rights, advocacy of the right to bear arms as well as his anti-alcohol and anti-drug stances. On the other hand, Nugent is a very hard-working and ambitious person, who is known to have released more than 35 albums, sold more than 30 million records, and in the beginning of his career he was known to have organized more than 300 shows a year (1967–1973). Of course, all these efforts added much to the fame and the net worth of Ted Nugent. The musician says he was influenced by such outstanding personalities as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Frank Zappa, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels among others.

To begin with, Ted joined The Amboy Dukes band while still studying at high school. Soon, the band became very popular with their hits “The Amboy Dukes” (1967), “Journey to the Center of the Mind” (1968) and “Migrations” (1969). Then, Ted signed a contract with DiscReet Records, the label founded by Frank Zappa, and after a few releases including “Call of the Wild” (1973) and “Teeth Fang & Claw” (1974) the fans split into two groups, following either The Amboy Dukes or Ted Nugent. This caused many disagreements in the band, and Ted decided to pursue a solo career.

Since the beginning of his career he was very popular not only in USA but also Canada. The golden age of Ted’s career was the period from 1975 to 1981, when all the recordings released received certifications for sales, including “Ted Nugent” (1975), “Free-for All” (1976), “Cat Scratch Fever” (1977), “Weekend Warriors” (1978), “Double Live Gonzo!” (1978) “State of Shock” (1979) and “Scream Dream” (1980). All of them helped to increase the total size of Ted Nugent’s net worth considerably. Although later recordings were not certified for sales, almost all of them appeared in the Billboard Top 100. Ted Nugent is active up to date, despite the hearing loss he has suffered since 2005.

In addition to his career in the music industry, Ted Nugent has also made one in the media. Nugent starred in his show “Spirit of the Wild” (2001–2003), hosted the reality television series “Surviving Nugent” (2004) and was seen in the show “Super Group” (2006). He has appeared in various television series, such as “Miami Vice” (1986) and “Undeclared” (2001). As a guest he has been invited onto many shows, as “The Midnight Special” (1978), “Newton’s Apple” (1991), “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (2007).

More, Ted Nugent has added sums to his net worth as the author of books, including the best seller “God, Guns and Rock ‘n’ Roll” (2000) and many publications.
