I don’t understand something...

Post by KEZHEAD » Tue Mar 24, 2020 8:52 pm

Why do Deadheads dislike Ted Nugent so much?
I saw him at The Spectrum in the late 70’s
He was a madman on stage
Stranglehold is a great song imo

I got you in a stranglehold baby

I heard he put on a great show. If I want a great show I'll go to Vegas. Big difference between a show and a concert in my books. But that's just me.
Never cared for the man or his music. Not my musical genre, plus just has an abrasive facade about him. And my oldest brother listened to him constantly growing up, which probably enters into the equation .

I generally don’t care about the personalities of musicians or entertainers.

And then there is Ted Nugent.

I’ve heard stories of him being a draft dodger of some kind
Would not bathe himself and when it came time for him to enter into boot camp
He was covered in his own urine and feces and was declined entry

I heard he had some disparaging comments regarding Jerry Garcia’s guitar playing and something else that people say is that he married a teenager or close to it. I have seen his concerts a couple times and it was a good show if you like his music. But his over the top personality and extra conservative views coupled with the rumors listed above make him unappealing to me.

Hunting....
I used to hunt for food not sport
I am no stranger to a bow and arrow or a .22 riffles with a scope
In a tree stand at early dawn tracking deer
Please don’t get me wrong folks I am not an arrogant asshole like Ted

Couple reasons
1. RAT wanna be cop
2. He cant stand drug users such as pot heads or Deadheads.
3. He kills for pleasure.
I guess that's about all that needs said.
