I hope the one hit wonder takes this opportunity to learn how to be a human.

If not, he will not be missed.

'"everybody" told him that he shouldn't announce his diagnosis'

Nugent gets points for overcoming the COVID mob. Less famous people are apt to get death threats for lack of conformity.

Maybe Nugent did got death threats for telling the truth? Maybe almost dying from a dread disease makes the promise of passing by human hands seem a little less dire?

I came to this site hoping for a story that would make me smile and did I ever get one.

Thanks Rein.

I kind of hope he ends up in the hospital. But even that doesn't change people's minds... At least it sounds like it isn't an asymptomatic case.

Most people would be humbled to have their phony bravado and lies exposed like this, but not Ted. He uses the opportunity to remind everyone what a racist dick he is.

Every time I see his name I have to look him up, why is he famous?

Ted Nugent: Rock n Roll poseur. a bigger sellout than Bob Seger, certainly much less threatening then The MC5, cannot dance so comparisons to anyone from Motown is not worthwhile, and would have his butt kicked by Iggy Pop. Jack White is a much better guitarist (as was Ron Asheton), and Alice Cooper (only an honorary Detroiter) has a much more disturbing stage presence and is certainly still more popular.

Nugent adopted the Grand Funk Railroad dictum--if you can't play good, play loud. And if you can't play at all, play even louder...

The first album was very good. After that he was a joke (when he fired his lead singer/bassist and started singing himself)

It's too bad the pants ishing draft dodger, kiddy diddler didn't die, Satan could use a new guitar player in his band. How is it that he didn't get charged for having sex with his 17-year-old ward? He got her parents to allow him to be the girl's guardian so that she could live with him and he could sex her. He's is a disgusting pig.

Did you expect anything else from a guy who raped a teenager?

I have zero sympathy for loud mouth naysayers who get the thing they've been naysaying! People have suffered & died while Ted literally called Covid --------. #------------

Zero sympathy for Asian hate ?
You want to dish out hate you're going to get hate right back no problem
Zero sympathy for anyone I meet that uses the N word ?
For every musician like this there is a guy like me or Dee who is not going to take it ??
Plus we are bigger than them
