When musician and activist Sir Paul McCartney was set to perform in Israel to celebrate the country’s 60th birthday, he was threatened by extremists not to perform on their soil.
The gig in Tel Aviv back in 21 September 2008 was filled with very negative energy from the very start. McCartney had received death threats from Islamic extremists, and they surely didn’t want him to perform there.
In his support came another rockstar Ted Nugent who claimed he could become Paul’s bodyguard for the show. He went on to urge Sir Paul to consider his offer very seriously. Nugent, who has trained with military specialists and other various law agencies for over 30 years said, “It would be my pleasure to keep this legendary musical hero safe from terrorists and madmen, and then buy him a nice dinner of tofu.” He added,
“I’m Dirty Harry with a ponytail, and I’m at Paul’s service.”
Previously before this, he also went on to say, “Regardless that Paul and I have our obvious social, cultural, and culinary differences outside of music, I will not bend or waiver to voodoo religious whackjobs and neither should Paul, ” as McCartney is a vegetarian and animal rights activist and Nugent is a member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) and a hunter.
