A Long Fall From The Top...

This guy made three or four GREAT records in the 70's and has now become a bonafide raging lunatic. Quite a shame really. I had heard that when John Popper was pulled over a couple of months ago with a cache of firearms in his SUV he exclaimed to the cop, "They're not mine, I'm just holding them for Ted Nugent".

"As I try to make my way in an ordinary world..."

I think that the only arms we have the right to bear are the ones on sale when that document was written.

My wife and I were on our way to Sedona, NM when a freeway sign informed us that the next 5 miles were sponsored by Ted Nugent. (When you leave the east coast and head west, they make you call highways, freeways.)

Immediately images of Ted standing on to of his Suburban, crossbow aimed at the many deer that roamed the land on either side of the road, popped into my head.

The other image that also popped into my head was sitting 3 rows away trom the ceiling at the Nassau Colliseum wearing a black-and-white, baseball-sleeved concert shirt. Watching Ted Nugent fucking rock the colliseum wearing only a loin cloth! (Wango Tango tour)

Most people prefer their entertainers a bit on the loco side. In the end (artistic-wise) it doesn't seem to matter if you are right loco or left loco. Just go for loco.

I was always partial to "Stranglehold", "Death by Misadventure" and the inescapable "Free for All". And, of course, one of the greatest "Live" rock solos ever on "Great White Buffalo". Your a crazy fucked up dude who could play the guitar Mr. Ted Nugent.
