Wildman rocker Ted Nugent is gearing up for an active 1999,
despite announcing his retirement in 1998. The "Cat Scratch Fever"
singer and hunting enthusiast will headline this summer's "Rock Never
Stops" tour, which also will include hard rockers Night Ranger,
Quiet Riot and Slaughter, according to Nugent's management
office. Meanwhile, Nugent soon will begin recording an album with
Damn Yankees (his group with Night Ranger bassist Jack Blades
and Styx guitarist Tommy Shaw); he also plans to record a
solo disc this year.
