Michigan's MLive! took a special poll to determine the greatest guitar player in the Detroit area, and when they were finished, all signs pointed at Mr. 'Stranglehold' himself - Ted Nugent. 'Uncle Ted' beat out Jack White, Marshall Crenshaw, and Wayne Kramer of MC5, among others.

Known as "Motor City Madman," the musical icon of rock 'n’ roll won the title by a landslide, with a total of 428 votes. The numbers tallied showed over 51 percent of those voicing their opinion voted Nugent, proving that his hometown followers are proud of his five decades of multi-platinum and sold-out worldwide tours.

Throughout this year, Nugent can be seen on the road with other legendary rock bands, REO Speedwagon and Styx, on the Midwest Rock 'n' Roll Express Tour. The multi-city trek has been dubbed as one of the hottest summer package tours of the year by Rolling Stone magazine. Check out a list of the forthcoming tour dates for Nugent below.

Ted's landmark 1977 album 'Cat Scratch Fever' recently celebrated its 35th anniversary and 'Stranglehold,' from his self-titled debut solo album, recently earned a spot on our Top 100 Classic Rock Songs countdown
