The Details: You probably know the names of Brad Whitford and Derek St. Holmes for their numerous accomplishments with both Aerosmith and the mighty Ted Nugent over the years but did you know that these guys released some music as a rocking duo back in 1995? Well they did and it’s for fans of a rock solid driving groove for sure. It’s something that I was never able to enjoy back in its original release heyday but they’ve recently rejoined forces for the masses and will be bringing one of their shows to the venerated B.B. King Blues Club venue in Times Square. With that in mind I am psyched to be offering my PiercingMetal readers the chance to see this incredible pairing for free thanks to the fine folks at B.B. King Blues Club where they will be performing this coming Wednesday, November 18th. Read more on how to participate below.

“Motor City Mayhem” [Blu-ray] by Ted Nugent

Artist: Ted Nugent
Title: “Motor City Mayhem” [Blu-ray]
Label: Eagle Vision
Release Date: 6/30/2009
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

Having reviewed this DVD when it originally was released on standard edition DVD and finding no real difference other than the presentation on the Blu-ray medium I am re-presenting my words about this issue for those fans who might not own it yet. Please continue.

While it’s probably safe to say that if you have seen one Ted Nugent live video concert then you have seen them all since many follow a particular standard when it comes to the set list and one can always count on Uncle Ted being at his audience appeasing best with the guitar and his electric dialogue. That being said this particular DVD is yards ahead of the many that have preceded it and that’s because this is one of total celebration of a life lived and breathed in the fires of Hard Rock & Roll. Presenting “Motor City Mayhem”, the 6000th official show ever done by the musician, filmed in front of a hometown audience on July 4th 2008. It doesn’t get any more American if you ask me and the show starts off with a bang as members of the US Armed Forces greet the musician and as he enters and performs “The Star Spangled Banner”, an absolutely stunning young bikini clad model pops out of a giant cake. Talk about getting a party started right, and through it all Ted is his humble self telling the audience to wish him a happy anniversary before he kicks the show into gear. Of course no one seemed to be complaining by the looks of the crowd in the video. The live performance comes released to the masses a few short months after the CD that bore the same name and presented the full set on two discs for his fans to enjoy. Now the Nugent completist can properly see just what the audio teased them about by showcasing it on a nice big TV with the speakers pumping at full volume.
