Ted Nugent’s Eleven Greatest Guitarists Of All Time

In a recent interview with Music Radar, the motor city madman Ted Nugent listed who he thought were the eleven greatest guitarists of all time. Check it out below.
Nugent included himself in the list citing that, “…my unique defiance of scales and predictable patterns on my incredible solos, creates what is, without question, my favorite music in the world.”
For those that aren’t familiar with his six-string ability, Nugent says there is only one song they need to hear. “Everyone should listen to my song Fred Bear and see why it has been the number one requested and celebrated song for more than 25 years in the four states in which it is played on the radio to see what I mean.”
