The “Motor City Madman” is to arrive in Palatine Aug. 1 at 5 p.m. outside Durty Nellie’s for the dedication of a rock ’n’ roll monument to his late mother, Marion “Ma” Nugent.
Local musician Eric Kinkel has spearheaded the project and arranged for a 4-ton stone to be unveiled that day in front of the Palatine eatery and music pub at 180 N. Smith St.
“Ma” Nugent, as she was known to most, was a Palatine resident for 28 years. She was an avid supporter of local musicians and her own son’s career.
She died in 1988 and Kinkel, a family friend, says she never got the proper tribute.
“I look forward to seeing this all come together,” he said.
A rock was chosen as a metaphor for the music she loved best: rock ’n’ roll.
It will be sandblasted and have a bronze, engraved plaque.
Kinkel says it will be considered a focal point in downtown Palatine. Artists and landscapers have donated time and materials for the project.
