Ted Nugent on Politics: "Obama Represents Everything Bad About Humanity"

Ted Nugent is a musical hero that has no equal.

Put any other guitar warrior in a life or death scenario -- the end result would be death. If Eddie Van Halen was fighting crocodiles in the Everglades, his only defense would be finger-tapping up and down the croc's bumpy spine. If Slash was stuck in the Amazon battling an anaconda, he may be able to befriend him, but everyone knows snakes are sneaky. One minute they'll be slithering together, the next thing you know, that reptile's belly'll be shaped like a top hat. In either of these situations -- or one as perilous -- the Nuge has a plan for action.

As a guitarist and a showman, very few compare to Uncle Ted -- he's extreme and unfiltered. As a human being and an American, Nugent is just as extreme and unfiltered. He doesn't care if you agree with him. He couldn't give a shit if you dislike him. The man is firm in his convictions, and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone with a meatier lust for living.

We were fortunate enough to be given an access key to the Tedquarters Top Secret Email Portal -- so, before you catch him live at Revolution on Tuesday, check out what he had to say to us about life, end times, and the state of rock and roll.
