Reignited

How the Walnuts survived a raging house fire, two comas, and a near fatal rollover — and documented it

One might expect that after such life-threatening experiences, the Walnuts might get all benevolent and "glad to be alive" in their music, but that's obviously not true if you've ever seen the Walnuts live. They're about as in-your-face as any band could be, and Nugent has been known to accrue as many fines as fans for his pissed-off live-show demeanor, his stage-diving, and his carried-away-in-the-moment vandalism. "I actually pissed off a lot of bartenders and owners at Mason Jar and Bash on Ash, where I climbed the chain-link fence over to the bar," Nugent says. "Shit, if they didn't want me to cross that line, they should never have given me a hundred-foot cord.

"I still sing about depression, relationships and bullshits," he continues. "It's still pretty dark."

All fired up: The Walnuts are ready to rock again.

All fired up: The Walnuts are ready to rock again.

And like the band mural in his house that depicts all the harrowing events of the past 11 months, it's oddly uplifting, too.
