It doesn’t let up from there — in fact, we have it listed as one of the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs of all time — and this dynamic 2011 performance from Penn’s Peak demonstrates why pretty clearly…it’s Uncle Ted’s energy, charisma and guitar playing that dominate the proceedings, particularly during the song’s famous extended solo section.”

Additionally, touted,

Ted Nugent remains one of rock’s standout live performers…The ‘Nuge’ is in top form here, riffing through the classic licks. . .backed more than ably by guitarist Derek St. Holmes, bassist Greg Smith and drummer Mick Brown, Nugent and his band deliver a memorable version of this fan favorite.”
