Ted Nugent has taken a swing back at David Crosby in what is amounting to rock’s latest feud. Recently, a fan tweeted Crosby the question: “Ted Nugent recently said political correctness is keeping him out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. . . do you agree?” To which “Croz” responded: “No the ass**** just isn’t good enough.” Earlier this year Crosby retweeted a photo of Nugent and President Trump shaking hands in the Oval Office, with the caption: “This picture says it all. . . the two most insincere smiles in history what a pair of ass*****.”
Nugent responded to the most recent tweet on his Facebook page, posting, quote, “Everybody knows that David Crosby is an evil rotten soulless punk that has criminally poisoned his bloated carcass his entire vapid life. I couldn’t (sic) be more proud that such an uncaring dirtbag hates me while he competes with Michael Moore to see who can go the longest without hygiene. Zombieboy would hurt himself if he tried real rockNroll like mine. Lets (sic) all pray he can form a syllable before his borrowed liver fails. I laugh at his pathetic slovenliness as I wrapup (sic) the greatest ultraFun tour of my life.”
A while back, Ted Nugent admitted to us that he can’t believe how anything he says seems to be automatically cast in a negative light: “I mean, it’s just insanity how they immediately reduce everything I do to homophobic, sexist, racist, and shameless self-promotion.”
David Crosby told us that these days he doesn’t enter into any aspect of his life — personally or professionally — without a great deal of soul searching: “I look at myself a lot, I made an awful amount of mistakes in my life, and I’ve done harm. And I’ve had to look at myself. I had a year in a prison cell to look at myself. A lot of time to think. So, I do think about what I do and why and what it means and if it’s significant, or not.”
In 2014, Ted Nugent released his latest studio set titled, Shutup & Jam, which featured contributions from Sammy Hagar and longtime collaborator Derek St. Holmes.
David Crosby will release his latest set, titled Sky Trails on September 29th. Crosby and his band have announced a 25-date North American tour focusing on the Midwest and the Eastern seaboard. He kicks off the club shows on October 30th in Chicago’s City Winery.
