“Abandon egos, bragging and Ted Nugent speaking on behalf of Ted Nugent – is it or is it not vulgar, dishonest, and obscene that Grandmaster Flash, Patti Smith and ABBA are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but Ted fucking Nugent isn't? Is that the most outrageous and disgusting lie you have ever seen?”First things first, Ted Nugent can take several seats trying to come for Grandmaster Flash, Patti Smith and ABBA. There are countless artists who to this day can cite those acts as inspirations but with the exception of maybe Kid Rock, no one making music today that's worth their salt aspires to be like Ted Nugent.
“Would like you to find a human being…and believe them when they say Ted Nugent should not be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? I would love to witness that exchange. You would see a person almost melt with guilt because you know they are lying. At the end of the day, it's not about me – it's about the music. James Hetfield said it best when Metallica was inducted: ‘Ted Nugent not being in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. Ted Nugent is rock and roll’.”
That is really funny stuff ....he’s not good enough and he never will be ....a hack player and no singer at all ....could not write a decent song if his life depended on it https://t.co/vHzcSTMmPD— David Crosby (@thedavidcrosby) October 21, 2018
