I also have some Ted Nugent records and CDs. I don´t like his politics, but love his music. Scream Dream I loved. I just wish his politics were not what they are. Credit were it is due, he is a erious performer.
My favourite songs at present are,
Scorpions, Alien Nation,
Q5, Steel the Light
Boston, more than a feeling,
Thin Lizzy, Cold Sweat,
Ted Nugent, homebound,
Phenomena, No retreat not surrender & Hell on wings,
Europe, Wings of Tomorrow,
Aerosmith, Dream on,
Black Sabbath, Sign of the Southern Cross,
WASP, The Idol,
Alice Cooper, Poison,
Garry Moore, After the War & Out in the fields,
Cinderella, Gypsy Road,
Nightwish, Wish I had an Angel,
Heart, Nothing at all,
Deep Purple, Speed King & Child in Time,
Def Leppard, Gods of War & Women,
Iron Maiden, Run to the hills,
David Coverdale, Here I go again,
Ronnie James, Dio Children of the Night,
Then again, I was always a metal head and the metal will always be in me:)
I just followed the links. There is a lot there I did not know about and think quite a few in Europe don´t know about either.
In Europe we get the Nugent who hunts keyboards with his rifle and being a lunatic on stage, ie showmanship. We definately do not get the Republican draft dodger who makes himself out to be a real patriot. There is a lot about him in the US that we would not know about and would not thought to search for.
I have just posted this link to one of the rock forums I am on. The politics of Rammstein, Helloween and other metal groups quite often come up there and get very rough. http://www.campusprogress.org/tools/253/
First two reactions are WTF. His politics are seemingly very anti-european.
I honestly never thought about searching about him on Google. He appears to be diametrically opposed to virtually everything that most other rockers are saying.
In case anyone is wondering, Suzan’s last post was about the Dixie Chicks. Natalie made a comment about being ashamed by GW Bush, and all hell broke loose. They were called “traitors”. Radio stations refused to play their records. Folks tried to boycott their concerts (and were successful in some cases).
