TED NUGENT: "I Am A Gay Pirate"
Proud statutory rapist Ted Nugent has had a long, and inarguably, successful rock and roll career, but one achievement has eluded him: a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
When Albany Q103 host Tigman asked "the Motor City Madman" why that was, he seemed to have an idea:
“Jan Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone and the boss hog at Rock and Roll 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,” says Nugent. “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 numbnut 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.”
But the real money quote is when the Nuge was asked how he felt that he is not in the Hall while "non-rock acts" like Madonna and Grandmaster Flash are in the Hall:
“I mean, why don’t you just piss on Chuck Berry’s grave, you know what I mean?” stated Nugent, later adding, “Yeah, Grandmaster Flash is rock and roll. And I’m a gay pirate.”
See, he said it! No fake news here. Sure, he may have meant it sarcastically, but we are not ones to judge. Live your best life, Ted!
Also, does he not realize the incredible irony of joking about pissing on Chuck Berry's grave? Mr. Berry had quite the piss fetish. So is the Nuge admitting to being a gay pirate with a piss fetish? We'll reach out for comment.
