The Amboy Dukes

The Amboy Dukes was an American rock band formed in 1964 in Detroit, Michigan, best known for their one hit single Journey to the Center of the Mind. The band's name comes from the title of a novel by Irving Shulman. In the UK the group's records were released under the name of The American Amboy Dukes because of the existence of a British group with the same name.

The band went through a number of personnel changes during its active years, the only constant being lead guitarist and composer Ted Nugent. The band transitioned to being Nugent's backing band before he discontinued the name in 1975. The group contributed to the foundations of heavy metal and progressive rock. The group's primary genres were psychedelic rock and hard rock. (Wikipedia)
