He is also active outside music, a staunch conservative, or perhaps more accurately a libertarian? He has hosted a radio show in his native Detroit, produced a series of instructional hunting videos, sits on the Board of Directors to the National Rifle Association.
He has written several books, including his autobiography God, Guns & Rock'N'Roll , Kill It & Grill It: A Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish which he co-authored with his wife Shemane Nugent and Executive Rock : A Fan's Perspective on the Evolution of Popular Music Since 1950 . (His wife Shemane has also written Married to a Rock Star )
Last but not least, has his own brand of Beef Jerky called Gonzo Meat Biltong.
