While doing press for a tour that brings him to the Paramount Wednesday night 8/16, Ted Nugent told an upstate New York radio station that it’s the PC police who are keeping him out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He said “political correctness is a self inflicted and embarrassing scourge that someone like Patti Smith” is in the Rock Hall and he isn’t!
The Motor City Mad Man laid into the Rock Hall head honcho saying “Jan Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone and the boss hog at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he hates freedom, he hates the Second Amendment, he hates me, because I’m on the board of directors — quite proudly — of the National Rifle Association for, like, twenty-six years with some of the highest votes except for Charlton Heston and I couldn’t be more proud of that, ’cause the NRA is the ultimate family, grassroots organization that fights for the right to defend ourselves. What kind of numb-nut would be against that? And so I’m on the board of directors of the NRA, Jan Wenner hates the Second Amendment, so that’s the only reason I’m not in the Rock and Roll of Fame. And until they get their heads out of their ass, I’m more than happy to do what I do and do it with all the vim and vigor that I do it every night.”
And in a parting shot (pun intended). Nugent declared “I AM THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME! EAT ME!”
