    Nah, I don't think he's "become" anything. I think he was just being himself and it got noticed by those who normally pay him no attention for a change.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Anyway, back to the OP... I was amused by this quote from the OP's link...


    To be fair, I have never met the guy in person. But my in-laws live in Michigan, and they have friends that do know Ted quite well. They pretty much all tell my in-laws that, up close and personal, Ted is an asshat of the highest order.

    Third-hand info, but it fits with other reports I've heard about him over the years.

    I do believe he is sincere in his beliefs, and I believe that he is pretty much always honest, and I do admire that. Sincerity and honesty is way too UNcommon in today's world. I don't disagree with everything he says, but he is too extreme for me, in an overall sense. He may be kidding himself, but he's not lying to me, if that makes sense.
    Living in Nashville and knowing people in the music industry, I, too, have heard that he's an impossible dick to work with.

    Good question.

    I view a guitar player as one who plays in the band. I am not really big on three minute mastaburtory solos designed to say "hey look at me". That is what Nugent did over and over again to get attention. His work within the song was merely adequate.

    I would view Wayne Kramer of the MC5 as far better during that same time.

    A "political quiz" for one is not the most accurate thing and does not take into count a lot of other variables...

    and yes, you are being hackish.... one thing that has been made crystal clear in every one of your posts is that anything right wing is bad , horrible, or evil.... that's the reputation you have built for yourself here.
    Yeah, I tend to react negatively to draft dodging hypocritcal asshats like Nugent.

    As for my reputiation, thank you. That's exactly what I was striving for.

    Yeah...so money doesnt really matter I guess. And apparently there are some unknown musician and guitar Gods right here on our website...but I somehow doubt they could get past the first three bars of Smoke on the Water. And I would still love to see people stack up their life resume against his. I think we might see pretty quick who the pathetic insignificant ones are.
    Gee, so if you aren't a draft dodging, right wing foaming at the mouth gun nut who defines rock and roll mediocrity, you are pathetic and insignificant. Good to know the pantspisser Nugent is held in such high esteem by you.
