    Default Ted Nugent's favorite rock star.........

    Saw this today in our local newspaper here in Raleigh,nc:

    Link: http://newsobserver.com/sports/story...-8555199c.html


    Q. Speaking of music, who's your favorite rock star?

    A. Sammy Hagar has always been held in a position of high esteem because he's so energized and so dedicated to that rhythm-and-blues primal scream. Certainly all the guys in Aerosmith and Cheap Trick and ZZ Top, and, even as stupid as Eddie Halen is with his substance abuse, he's such a brilliant virtuoso and he's surrounded with Michael and Alex and everybody he's ever worked with. I've always had great admiration for everything musical from the Van Halen camp.

    Ted certainly won't mince his words, pretty direct comment on EVH's alcohol problem. Nice compliment to the Red Rocker though.

    I met him once in Dallas at the airport, very well spoken guy. Very nice to all the people who approached him as well.

    That's definately cool. It's funny that even Ted mentioned how out of control Ed's substance abuse problem is. But hey, he mentioned how he always admired VH's musical talents, so that's pretty impressive coming from Ted.

    Ahhhh, the Nuge... I always liked his "I don't care what anybody else thinks" attitude. Good read

    Ted, you are a smart man, great taste, and hopefully with more comments like those and enough pressure Ed will deal with his problem head on.. on the quote.

    If Ed let his substance abuse destroy his marriage, I'm pretty sure there's nothing Ted could ever say to change him. But hey, I guess there's always hope

    I guess this website has turned into a soap opera focusing on Eddie's personal addictions.

    I agree, that and Wolfgang is at a age now where he knows what`s going on and probobly hears and reads the stuff, you would think if Ed is concerned about that there is probobly no hope.

    I was at a Nuge concert two weeks ago in the 2nd row, I was wearing a VH short [one with just the rings on it] He pointed at my shirt and flipped me the thumbs up. Uncle Ted rocks.

    Great read, thanks! I always knew that Ted & Sammy were good buddies! They're both conservative and intelligent rockers. I remember a highlight that VH-1 was doing on Ted Nugent where they talked to a whole bunch of rock stars about Ted. One of them was our man, Sammy. Sam said that:
    "One time, Ted was visiting up near my hometown, and we went up to the Bay Area in my brand new Ferrari at the time, and Ted asked to drive. I said, sure, why not. Well, we were on the Golden Gate Bridge, and some guy cut us off. Then, Ted pulled out his gun, and also tried running the guy off road, ON THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE!!! Ted's CRAZY, but I love him for it!"
    YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE THE "MOTOR CITY MADMAN!"
    I did not know that Ted is a big VH fan, and has that much respect for all of the members and the music they have made, past or present. That's cool.

    That'd be cool to have a Ted Nugent/VH tour. And at the end Ted could come onstage and jam with VH like he did with Sammy.

    Ted kicks ass! I saw him in January in northern Indiana, KILLER SHOW! He and Sammy are pals, so this doesn't really come as a shock to me that Sam is his favorite. But its cool! I was really hoping for that Nugent/Hagar tour for this summer that was rumored last year, too bad its not going to happen.
