In an ‘Appetite For Distortion’ podcast interview, Tom Werman, producer of some of Ted Nugent’s early albums, discussed Nugent’s talents and public political stances.

Werman, a Democrat, still communicates with Nugent, who sends him new music. Werman acknowledges Nugent’s outspoken nature and is puzzled by his political views, but believes these overshadow his musical achievements.

Nugent, frustrated about not being in The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, blames it on others’ character flaws. In a 2021 Knac Magazine interview, he questioned why artists like Triumph are overlooked while Grandmaster Flash, Patti Smith, ABBA, and Madonna are inducted, suggesting bias among decision-makers.

Nugent’s political views also led to the cancellation of his concert at Avondale Brewing Company in Alabama. Scheduled for July 18th, the venue and Red Mountain Entertainment canceled it after community backlash.

Avondale Brewing Company prioritized community concerns in their decision. Nugent, responding on X, labeled his critics as “liars & haters” and quickly arranged another show on the Mississippi border.
