Ted Nugent is one crazy guy and we know it. A rocker, a political activist & much more.
In a brand new interview with the “Behind The Vinyl” podcast, legendary rocker Ted Nugent talked about touring outside the US.
“I wanna tour around the globe.”
“I miss England and Europe. I’ve never been to Australia. I miss touring around the world, but a good man knows his limitations.
“I’ve gotta tell ya, it would be a miracle if I ever tour other than the United States ever again. There’s a good chance of Canadian dates, ’cause it’s nearby, but I just don’t have the energy or capabilities of that damn flight. It beats the sh*t out of me.
“I went to Okinawa to play for the marines, and it took me three or four weeks to get really healthy again… I think it’s just age. That long flight — I can’t sleep on an airplane. The first thing to go to terrorize your immune system and your health is lack of sleep. So, again, I know what my limits are, and I’m not taking any drugs to mitigate those conditions. I’d rather just eat back straps.
“So I think if somebody wants to hear the greatest killer music in the world, they have to come to the United States and watch me and Greg [Smith, bass] have the time of our lives. It’s very, very, very celebratory.”
