I'm not a big fan of either one of them and don't like Nugent much as a human. Don't like Ted's voice either.
But, Nugent can play the guitar. Just before EVH hit the scene, he was probably the most innovative showman on stage that had the chops to back it up.
Agree 100% on the first two sentences. I respect Moore's talents, and put him in the category of Rory Gallagher - really good, but I can't imagine ever intentionally listening to them.
Less certain on your last sentence. There were a hell of a lot of guitar players in the 70's with adult-sized chops, and in terms of showmanship, Nugent struck me as a one-man Kiss. But better chops and a shtick aimed at 14-year olds instead of 12 year-olds.
Agree but prefer Nuge over Moore…Moore isn’t even my favorite Thin Lizzy guitarist (Gorham or Robertson).Gary Moore for me by a country mile.
I'm gonna be the odd & honest one to say it.........I actually agree with what most of Nugent says.
Strip away the emotion and group think and Nuge ain't wrong 95% of the time. He's human and he's entitled as anyone else to say what he believes. There's far worse than Nuge walking around and being broadcast.
Ted Nugent: Blathering big-mouth? It's a shame what he's done to Ted Nugent: Rock Star's legacy.
Many myself included are turned off by his “antics” etc… that I can’t even listen to the music. Many people in the general public know him more for politics and antics than the music, at least in my observation and experience.I don't see how anything he does can affect his rock legacy. The tracks are what they are. The shows were what they were. None of it can be affected by subsequent developments.
