Background
I'm not a fan of this blokes politics, nor his gun stance affiliated with the NRA. But you can't deny the success he had during the 70's. 'Weekend Warriors' first appeared decades ago, way back in my high school days. I'll admit, I bought the records but was never completely sold on his studio albums. I much preferred his live albums instead. Of course there were the rather cool album covers too, with guns to the fore even that far back.


The Songs
During 1978, Nugent released two albums, the first being the double live LP 'Double Live Gonzo!' which was released at the start of the year, while 'Weekend Warriors' followed up in September. New recruit Charlie Huhn took over from Derek St Holmes, who had departed earlier in the year to focus on his new project St Paradise, while bassist Rob Grange also pulled the plug, his place taken by David Hull. 'Weekend Warriors' wasn't particularly strong in memorable songs, with only 'Need You Bad' being the single taken from the LP.


In Summary
Nugent continued to draw large arena audiences with an assortment of support bands including Angel (support during early 1979), plus Starz, AC/DC and Cheap Trick among others, during 1978. Probably not the best Nugent album of the 70's, I think his 1975 debut takes that award.

As mentioned, I did buy all Ted's solo albums during this era, but by 1978, I had discovered Van Halen, and from that point onward, the rest is history.

I love early Ted solo, especially the Derek St Holmes era, but the artwork on this album is worth the price on its own. I got Ted to sign mine with a big silver sharpie when I interviewed him many years ago. It looks fantastic!

I never got Nugent either. I bought an Amboy Dukes album years after High school and found it slightly more appealing, but still.....
