Derek St. Holmes at The Rockpile!

So, let me start off with a quick synopsis of The Meister and Mr. Ted Nugent. Some may call it “classic rock” but for me The Nuge has always been considered “dock rock”. Why? Well, because when I was somewhere around 16-20 and was up at a friend’s cottage in Northern Ontario on weekends sitting […]
