  • Ted Nugent

    Haven’t been to a concert in 15 years or so. Not really into crowds and hearing damage and all that. However, Ted is getting pretty old for doing concerts and I decided I had to see him before it’s too late. Amazing show. Phenomenal guitar player. Great entertainer. Glad I went. If you like his stuff at all, I recommend seeing a show if you can.

    Opened with Stranglehold (greatest love song ever, ha ha). All the big songs you know. Fred Bear live is a moving experience for sure. That alone was worth the price of admission. Guitar work live was better than the studio version of any of the songs. Took about a whole day for my hearing to return to normal, lol.

      I love Ted! I wasn’t necessarily into his music way back then, but love his political views, interviews, etc.

        "Foreigners are assholes; foreigners are scum; I don't like 'em; I don't want 'em in this country; I don't want 'em selling me doughnuts; I don't want 'em pumping my gas; I don't want 'em downwind of my life -- OK? So anyhow, and I'm dead serious...." -- Excerpted in No Compromise, July 2000.

        "Apartheid isn't that cut-and-dry. All men are not created equal." -- Quoted in the Detroit Free Press in 1990.

        Those the kinda politics you're into?

        My grandparents are green card holders. Nuff said.

        He speaks his mind right or wrong, that I do admire in anyone even if I dont agree with them, but its refreshing to see someone where in 5 seconds you know where you stand with him. That being said this country was built on foreigners and as long as they have come here legally I'm all for them being here. As for his last statement, it's true not all men are created equal, hell twin brothers arent created equal and the country and world for that matter would be better off if we could just admit it. Right now I'm watching the Indians clobber the Yankees and remembering the last time I went to a batting cage and had trouble just fouling of balls in the 80mph cage, and these guys are hitting 425 foot home runs on 98 mph fastballs

        j89k. while in no means am i saying ted did not say that, however i would like to see the full un edited interviews seeing so called journalists for big media seem to be more inline with creative editor's than journalists. very little info to go on with those qoutes. personally i like that you know just what the man is thinking and he does not sugar coat a single thing. love him or hate him he is honest and thats saying more than how most people are today.

      I’ve always thought hearing Fred Bear live would be awesome.

        +1 for the Nuge...

        my great grandparents bought my grandparent here from Syria and Lebanon in the 1800's. My family has been here ever since. Legally.

          My maternal grandfather came through Ellis Island legally from Croatia at the age of 14 along with his brothers and father. His father went back home to be with the family. Grandpa Nick assimilated extremely well, working in the mines initially and then becoming a barber in Cottonwood, Arizona. He had nothing good to say about the government where he came from. Though I wasn't really into Ted Nugent's band, I did think that they were a lot better than Foreigner.

            I had the honor of bringing Ted onstage back when I was still working for Clear Channel. Had heard rumors that he was a real asshole but he wasn't an asshole to me. A consummate showman who leaves it all on the stage every time.

              Proud to maintain the aircraft that brought Ted to the show. One of my customers is a Super Fan and picks him up in Waco and flies him in to all the shows. As to his politics, I mostly agree, but like many in the spotlight, I don’t march in lock step with him. Regardless, he’s on the right side of the constitution. Legal immigrants assimilating into Americans are not the same people as “foreigners” by the way. I understand where he is coming from.


              Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.
