TED NUGENT: SCOTT WEILAND's Dream Is To Be A Liberal Hippie Puke Dog

January 21, 2005

Ted Nugent recently spoke to Lisa Frydman of the Chicago Sun-Times about his recent Persian Gulf tour with country artist Toby Keith and his conservative politics, among other topics. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow:

On his recent Persian Gulf tour with Keith:

Ted Nugent: "The tour was a gargantuan reminder of why I'm such a patriot. Those who think the war is not the answer are mentally ill. War is how good stops evil. There's no Plan B here, folks. No negotiating with intruders. Toby and I were in and out of every little outpost in Afghanistan and Iraq. It was wonderful, a 'Ted Fest' day and night with the soldiers. Hey, I think I'm the first USO celeb to carry his own machine gun and ammo."

On his conservative politics — rare for a rocker?

Ted Nugent: "I've always been ostracized. I'm so different from your average hippie guitar player. Even in the '60s, I was a hunter, always had guns, big on law and order and always anti-drugs."

His take on today's best young musicians:

Ted Nugent: "Whoa, as long as we're clear here we're not mixing talent with politics ... Christina Aguilera and John Mayer are very talented and soulful. I like Dave Matthews and Scott Weiland from VELVET REVOLVER, even if his dream is to be like Ozzy [Osbourne] — a liberal hippie puke dog."
