Rock legend Ted Nugent had a recent interview with the Guitar World and shared his thoughts on if he gets the credit he deserves as a guitarist.
Ted said that he feels the appreciation and that’s the only thing matters for him.
Here is his whole statement:
“Oh, yeah. I mean, you’ll never get the world to accept you. And I’m not interested in the world accepting me.
I’m interested in honest, sincere music lovers, gung-ho music lovers that really understand the essence of what Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis brought to us from Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker and B.B. and Albert and Freddie King and Lightnin’ Hopkins and all the originators, I’m interested in what they feel.
And that historical appreciation is so alive and well in every face in my audience. And it’s so alive and well on my Facebook page, where people talk every day about the minute details of a lick in an Amboy Dukes song that I wrote almost 50 years ago.
They bring this stuff up and I go, ‘Hallelujah!’ All these people are really paying attention and they really love the efforts musicians – especially this musician – go through to deliver a musical vision that they love and that they share.”
