Trust me, I only did it because it was funny! These guys were every bit as pretentious as your average '70s prog rock band.

There's no such thing as showing that clip too often.  :)

A special treat for Herr Fraulein from an Australian one hit wonder in 1976.

Cheers

one of nugent's bassists played one. don't know who, though.

Dave Kiswiney. Played a Grabber modified with a P-pickup and also played (or at least advertised) the Victory.

Lovely, but don't all Australians? Women were few and far between on that prison island and some habits get stuck. That song must have struck a common sentiment downunder.

Love the band: the singer is a Roger Daltrey/Gary Holton clone with a Geddy Lee voice, the drummer and guitarist not only look like, they are Woody Woodmansey and Mick Ronson after a bad night and the bassist is a Rick Derringer clone, Edgar Winter's White Trash era.

Saw Kiswiney playing one and I'm sure I have some pics of him somewhere but found this (typically Nugent) video...



Do RD's count as FBG's...?

Dave Kiswiney it is. I had only known him as a Victory endorser, but here he is with a Ripper (but getting Grabbers and Rippers mixed up -who doesn't? Until I ended up here, I could never tell them apart myself!).



There is an Oakland 79 Ted Nugent concert on Wolfgang's Vault that has David playing the Ripper all the time, the Victory wasn't out yet.

It's sad to see that line up. Huhn and Kiswiney replacing St. Holmes and Grange respectively. The replacements are both fine musicians even though Huhn struts too much (uneasy with not being allowed to be the real frontman, a position Ted has taken ill-advisedly) and Kiswiney - Gibson player or not - has none of the menace in his playing Grange had with his P. But what is worse is the visual deterioration, the old line up was a gang and came across as such, these guys are hired hands with a buffoon as a frontman.

Would you believe that he played two sets, one night, at the Hammersmith Odeon (iirc) at that time - one off gig - and it was a funding gig for the WWF - World Wildlife Fund... :o

I think I still have a bright yellow tee somewhere up in the loft with the WWF panda logo and Nugent on it too... highly incongruous...

Nofi, no one in his right mind irrespective of political view here will come up to latter day Ted Nugent's defense, his views are beyond discussion really. It's ok to be conservative, but bring a brain along (same goes the other way). So he dodged the draft, maybe I would have too, the US has fought more noble wars than the one in Vietnam (as Herr McNamara would agree, albeit belatedly), I don't hold that against him. Just like there is nothing to hold against people who went for honorable reasons. Of course his dumb-ass projection of himself today is unbearable with that type of personal history, I'm with you.

But David Kiswiney is innocent!!! As are Rippers and Victories (not that there were any lasting ones in Vietnam tough you ripped the country alright, both puns intended!). Yet the man played with the Nuge for 10 years. I'm pretty much sure that in those ten years - as Nugent's motormouthing incoherent babbling got progressively worse - he must have died a death on stage quite a few times!

PS: Ken, I'm not a hunter myself but I don't see WWF work and reasonable hunting as mutually exclusive. Ted Nugent has said a myriad things that are inane but he has to my knowledge never advocated extinction of  a species - well, Democrats excepted maybe! - just for the heck of it.

Lovely!

I still think that his opinions about animals are generally more sane than those about people.

;D

Full response understood and agreed - just appeared rather jarring at the time...

Back to the subject matter - I've been trying to find any GFR video with Mel Schacher playing a Ripper circa 1975 but having no luck - around the time of the 2nd live album and when Farner shed his mane...
