Iconic Rock music veteran Ted Nugent made a new interview with Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon and revealed his thoughts on not being in Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, again.
Ted said that he thinks that he isn’t qualified enough in the top one hundred guitar players in America is just a stupid lie at all.
Here is what he said:
“This isn’t ego. I have an ego, because I have self-esteem, because I put my heart and soul into being the best that I can be. If you run a race and your chest breaks the ribbon and you’ve won the race, I think you can look in the camera and go, ‘Man, I’m fast. Man, I ran good.’ I think that should be celebrated.
Excellence should always be celebrated. But remember, those people in the musical [sic] industry who make those decisions about who’s best and who is in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, they hate me because I’m against dope. And I am against dope. I don’t think it’s good. I don’t want my sons and daughters, I don’t want my grandkids, I don’t want my pilots, I don’t want my band, I don’t want my crew stoned. I don’t want them comfortably numb.”
He continued and said:
“I don’t wanna have to wake ’em up three times to get to the gig. I don’t wanna have to remind ’em how the song goes. I’ve had this all my life. And these people in charge of deciding this, they don’t like me because I’m on the board of directors with the highest votes for 25 years on the National Rifle Association. They somehow blame inanimate tools on crime.”
