    He's not a legend for it, but he is not given enough credit as a guitar player. Most, if not all of the leads on the records are him. If you've seen him live, you'd realize that he is a phenomenal guitar player, but doesn't get his props for it.

    Agreed. There are people in this business who are - in the best sense of the word - ENTERTAINERS. Sinatra was one. Cab Calloway was one. Presley was one. James Brown was one. Michael Jackson was one - and Springsteen is one as well.

    However, when you combine the writing and musicianship with the ability to entertain, it puts Springsteen in a class with no other peer.

    .

    And let's not forget he threatened the POTUS and is a draft dodging coward.




    Patently false. His music has always sucked. I hated his music long before I knew anything about him as a man.
    as I said, one doesn't have to like his music in order to see the talent.

    First time I saw him, he played a 2 hour set, then an encore. After the encore, the house lights came up and we all started heading for the aisles. Next thing you know, he comes back out on stage wearing a hoodie, announces "I'm not tired yet," and plays 3 or 4 more songs.

    Re: Ted Nugent explodes at notion he's not a moderate

    Ted is a guy who plays a musical instrument and I guess sings...and is not a political expert anymore than a person who works in any other job or profession. In other words his political opinions shouldn't be anymore relevant than anybody else.

    And I don't think entertainers or performers should be given special status or media attention in order to express their political views or opinions.

    That seems to the norm. I have seen him too many times to even count and I would say that three hours is the average.

    Personally I hate it when I go to a concert to hear music and get a speech. STFU and play.

    Sorry, but I don't see talent. I see loud, stupid and obnoxious. I can see why the rednecks relate though.

    People who like their views are interested in hearing it and that's all there is to it. That's why there's so much apologetic behavior for Rage Against the Machine.

    I find it a distraction.

    that's a problem with you, not Ted Nugent.... what you "see" is irrelevant to his talent.
