    Actually, Nugent plays a wicked guitar, and at one point, during the 1970's, he reigned as the number one guitar player in the world for a short time. His songs? Pretty lame, for the most part, except for Stranglehold, which was a great song.

    yeah, he has lots of lame songs... and quite a few good ones... and a couple of great ones..... which is about par for a loooong rock and roll career.

    I worked security for a concert of his in Austin back in 94' ( Sneakers, on n Lamar.. now it's a mexican nightclub)... he played a 35 minute rendition of Stanglehold... it was incredible... truly incredible.....
    Motorhead opened for him.. and Lemmy is a sweaty nasty stinky pig. ... while he was doing Ace of Spades, I kept thinking " Secret.. strong enough for a man.. but not strong enough for Lemmy"

    I do like "Cat Scratch Fever," but anybody who says Nuge ever reigned over Jimmy Page....well, we're gonna have words, bro.

    Talking about women, guitars, amps, other guitarists/bands, songs, politics, etc, etc over a couple of beers would be cool
    It would be a very very ignorant conversation when it comes to politics... But i wouldnt mind the free beer

    This. Excellent guitarist. Influential to many other guitarists. If you don't like his kind of music to begin with fair enough. Not everybody likes hard rock. But I sense that some don't like his music because of him and his politics... which makes those people no less "tools" themselves.

    Anyway, back to the OP... I was amused by this quote from the OP's link...
    I'm an extremely loving, passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damned nice guy.
    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.
    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.

    That sound you hear emanating from the Pacific Northwest is the sound of Jimi Hendrix rotating in his casket. Nugent isn't fit to lick the sweat off Hendrix' balls. Mediocre talent, even worse human being. Or did you miss the part about him ****ting and pissing in his pants prior to his draft physical so that he would intentionally fail it? He's 'one of the army guys' just as long as he doesn't have to actually put his ass on the line.

    after the concert i worked for him, we were sitting in the back room shootin' the breeze... in that particular encounter, is was a good dude, not an asshole whatsoever.... but I can only speak for that one particular encounter..and a few others at gun shows where he was present and being a nice guy.
    it's possible he is an asshat of the highest order, but I haven't seen that side of him

    even his political enemies should be able to see his musical talents.. even if his music isn't in their genre preference.

    that some cannot see that is not an indictment against Ted, but a testament to their own character flaws.

    for instance, Zack de la Rocha and tom Morello... I disagree with many aspect of their politics... but as musicians, I enjoy their music and i'm thankful they share that talent with us all
