John Atlas put it well:
“He’s a decent guitar player, but a vile human being.”
That’s about right. And that’s why a crowd showed up outside Ted Nugent’s show at the Wellmont Theater last night. They weren’t there for the guitar playing, but to protest Nugent’s nasty-ass view of the world and other people. The Wellmont didn’t cancel Nugent’s show, despite calls asking them to do just that. Disgust with his racist and otherwise bigoted statements has cost Nugent gigs, like the casino booking Nugent lost Monday. Nugent calls people who protest him “unclean vermin”. I say there were a lot of good people – better than him – outside the Wellmont last night. My friend Stacy Kay took this snapshots:
