If you are on Team Nugent I have stereotyped you into the Rebel Flag pickup truck driving tank top wearing redneck set based soley on your musical tastes. Nugent, post “Wango Tango” has been nothing but a gurggling mouth of nonsense. From his hunting rambles to his obscure political rants, hes borderline psychotic and unfortunately he owns a guitar. That guitar pays his bills well since talent often is given to people who would be better off silenced.
Nugent spoke to Braveworlds.com in promotion of his new lp Shutup&Jam!, better he speaks to them than me. But I chose to cut and paste this beauty for you so you can see what a jackass this guy really is. He speaks to “Jeb”…nuff said,
Jeb: I love in “ShutUp&Jam” where you say, and I will paraphrase, that politics are fucked… the only thing that will save America is rock and roll.
Ted: “Who else could have written a song called ‘ShutUp&Jam’ but me? I am an organic guy. I don’t over-think anything. I respect, and work, on my intellect as much as possible so that I make proper and clever and positive decisions in life. When it comes to music, however, I can just turn the brain off. My guitar is plugged into my balls and my spirit.”
Jeb: Even though you write from the heart, during this time, did you ever think, “That’s almost too Nugent for Nugent.”
Ted: “No, I really don’t. I know that anything that comes blowing up off my guitar is so me. We’ve talked about this before, I don’t think the music loving public—I was going to say that they don’t understand the spontaneity of my career and my musical statements and visions. Now, however, with Facebook, if you want to have the time of your life, mostly good, but unfortunately in this time of good, bad and ugly, there is also bad and ugly, there are people that want to kill me because I eat venison. That is how sick some people can be. But, the positive, celebratory spirit of the millions of people that I communicate with on Facebook every day is a great thing.
What a relief that there are open-minded, educated, intellectual real rock and roll lovers, real soul music lovers and real rhythm and blues aficionados out there. They don’t ask any questions about where it comes from or how it happens. They know that the first Amboy Dukes album was a seventeen-year-old kid that just let it rip. They know that Hibernation and Migration and that every record I ever made was just how I felt. They know it is just a natural thing, and that it is just spontaneous and honest as you’d ever want your music to be. I think the vast majority of the people who pay attention to my music get that completely.”
