Celebrities I have met and their story. Part 1- Ted Nugent.
The one and only....
King Nuge The Great!
I am here to take a break from the norm for me (there really isn't a norm, because I write about everything : ) and share some stories about the celebs I have had the pleasure or misfortune of meeting.
Here is the story of my encounter with the foul mouthed, guitar slamming, tea toting, hunting, Motor City Mad Man, turned Motor Mouthed Family Man. He and I share Rock and Roll idols in Jimi Hendrix, of course ( Ted met Jimi, I did not), taste in music and a strong love for American Freedom.
Think or say what you may about Ted Nugent's music, politics, and public statements, but I will tell you that I will never forget meeting him! Ted was one of the coolest down to earth " big brother" type of guys I have ever met. In fact, when I saw him I said "Hey Ted, how are you?" and he replied " Hey man! I am awesome and loving life...How are you doing?" Though we only talked for about 4-5 minutes, I could tell that he was a caring, Spiritual person.
Years later, I saw him in concert and made it to the second row I think was. I was enjoying that moment as he was totally on that day! Sure enough, he looked over with a blank stare until I looked back and smiled. Then, believe it or not, he smiled, and nodded.
He is the coolest dude, I have met in a long time! There are a few other celebs I will say the same about, but Ted impressed me as a man who loves other people and human contact. He didn't have to say anything back when I said hey, but to stop and talk to me, a nobody. That told me all I needed to know.
