Q: Motor City Madman, I'm a fellow hunter, and I've been a fan of yours since you started the Amboy Dukes back in '67. How do you keep rockin' so hard almost 40 years later? -- Hank

A: Whoooooo-WHEEE, Hank! Thanks for the support, and keep up the fight to protect our God-given American way of life from these Bush-hatin', sprout-eatin' pinkos who never heard of a little thing called the SECOND AMENDMENT! You know what keeps me alive?! Droppin' a lion from 200 yards with a bolt-action rifle and some 175-grain ammo, or plantin' a two-blade broadhead into the ribcage of a woolly musk ox. YOWZA!!! That's the spirit of the wild in action, brother! Hank, if you got $1,500 layin' around, I highly recommend joinin' me in November for some wild-hog huntin' at the Ted Nugent Pork Slam 2005, down here at my Texas ranch. Plenty of adventure and pure-protein meat GUARANTEED! But sometimes the thrill of the kill ain't enough, Hank. Sometimes you gotta strap on a custom Stars & Stripes Les Paul, fire up the amps, dangle a foxtail from your pants, and give 'em a little WAAAAANGO TAAAAAANGO, baby! That's livin', Hank! GOD, GUNS, AND ROCK & ROLL FOREVER!!!!
