Though he had already established himself as a successful touring and recording artist in the mid-'70s, His Gonzoness became a certified superstar with 1977's CAT SCRATCH FEVER. Led by the smash title track and other testosterone-fueled anthems, the record went down as a shining moment in heavy metal history.
"Satisfaction," "Smoke on the Water," and "Cat Scratch Fever" are just three of this album's many gems. The title track features Bad Company's Boz Burrell on backing vocals and is centered on a guitar hook that stays in your mind long after the song is over. "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" is a furious rocker that describes Ted's favorite activity (besides hunting). "Death by Misadventure" is a forgotten classic, with an speedy and undeniably stylish solo. Ted's guitar virtuosity is further demonstrated on "Home Bound," his homage to Jeff Beck's "Freeway Jam." "Live It Up," Ted's mantra for the '70s, features percussion by co-producer Tom Werman and has a Bo Diddley feel. A wildly intricate bass/drum combo propels "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard." The two live bonus tracks from the Hammersmith Odeon in 1977 show why Ted is rivaled only by David Lee Roth for arena-stage raps.
