"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

When I think of legends, Nugent just doesn't rise to the top on any list. More like any one of dozens of musicans who had a run, a song or two some can remember.
Not a Santana, Clapton, Beck, Hendrix, Burton, Atkins.
Far as rock groups go his never was a Stones, Animals, Steppenwolf, Pink Floyd, even Kansas. More like a trendy band, bit light on everything but adolescent puns. But its only rock n roll and I like it...
He lost most his money and has had to start over, I doubt if he didn't make so much noise off the stage we would even remember him. Never discount his ego or ability to create a scene. His fans seem ardent, his message redneck a bit boastful. I'm sure millions of beer bellies scream HELL YEAH after one of Nugies rants.
Ted Nugent Concert Reviews and Ratings | Ticketmaster. Not bad for an old man
What about your ratings, dude? Nonexistent?
You ought to be ashamed of yourself
i don't think any of us are arguing he is the greatest rock and roller to ever live or some such nonsense ( which is why i don't understand the strawman comparisons).. but it cannot be denied that he has a long and illustrious rock and roll career with millions of fans.... he might not be the greatest ever, but he sure as hell is one of the busiest ever... he's basically been on tour for 40-something years
you don't get to perform over 6,000 concerts without being pretty damn good and having a pretty solid fan base....hell, I don't even know of any of the "greats" who have done so many performances.. they usually burn hot for a few years and fade away.
but meh, don't let your politics get in the way of reality.
