Friday is for Rawk! (Nugent on Saturday)

Uncle Ted at the Cow Palace, San Francisco in 1980  I think. The Scorpions opened the show and it was the first date I ever had with my wife. (I know, Mr. Romantic) As you can see, Nugent had entered his loin cloth stage and would make his appearance on stage by swinging in on a rope strung from the lighting rig. Pretty good show as I recall, since he was still playing the Birdland through Fender Twin stacks. At the end of the encores he leaned the hollow body against the wall of Fenders and let the feedback build up to a deafening roar as they brought the lights up in the arena.
