It's hard not to appreciate when a bunch of rock icons team together to deliver royal balladry and tasty, crunch riffs. That's just what happened in early 1990 when Shaw (Styx), Cartellone, Nugent, and Blades (Night Ranger) gave us their self-titled debut album.

The hit: High Enough

Coming of Age was a fun tune, but High Enough is the hit.


Was Ted Nugent in the band Damn Yankees?

Yes. Yes, The Nuge was in Damn Yankees. Not sure if Ted ever set out to be in a rock supergroup, but he found himself one in the early 90s.
