Ted Nugent says he couldn’t have a “meaningful” conversation with David Lee Roth: “the guy was crazy”


In a new interview with Darren Paltrowitz, host of “Paltrocast with Darren Paltrowitz”, Ted nugent was asked if ever had interactions with legendary VAN HALEN singer David lee roth. He replied (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I’ve done it – a few times. And I admire and praise his gifts of entertainment; he’s a monster. Tell me all this David lee roth music with VAN HALEN is not a rash of smile in our life. I mean, what a fun, cocky, soulfy guy. It really evokes, imitates and delivers touches of James brown and Wilson pickett and some Motown melodious growl, and certainly blues and gospel and rhythm and blues masters – you can hear it in David lee roth. I don’t think he’s ever given credit for those talents and musical abilities that I just mentioned. So I’m glad I mentioned them, because they should be attributed to him, because he delivered them with aplomb. “

Ted continued, “I have always been an activist against drug addiction, and it is an outright crime – literally and figuratively – and Davidis a perfect example. Again, I love him – I hope he is happy, I hope he is healthy. He seems to know what happiness and health are; God bless him. Thank you, David, to enrich our lives with your amazing music. God bless you. But tragically – and it goes to Eddie [Van Halen] also, and my meetings with Jimi Hendrix and so many people – you couldn’t have a meaningful dialogue. It was all smashed up, so when I sat down with it BB King and when i sit down with it Joe perry and Steven tyler, even though there were times when it was hopeless – there were times … And Sammy Hagaris a perfect example. We’ve got a meaningful, man-to-man, man-to-man bullshit session that is fun and deep, because he’s in tune with himself – and he’s really good at going out of tune with himself. But what I’m saying is I think it’s important to note that the incredible number of hours I’ve been honored and honored to spend with some of the most powerful musical authorities in the world, it doesn’t there was nothing to share because they were drunk or stoned. All of these moments reinforce my anger and hatred for people who leave the world to comfortably go numb. They don’t make anyone happy [when they do that]. They don’t owe me happiness, but wouldn’t it have been great for a smart one like David lee roth and a clever one like Ted nugent to discuss the art of smartass? I would have loved to have this conversation, but there was no way it would – the guy was crazy. “

In a 1987 interview with Guitar world, Nugent noted Eddie van halen was “a contemporary leader of the pack with as much impact as any individual guitarist who has ever lived – an innovator when innovation seemed to be under attack, an inspiration for any guitarist who wants to push the instrument’s lyrical interpretation forward. beyond its limits. “
