Ted Nugent: 'If It Wasn't for My Politics, People Would Admit My Songs Are Masterpieces'
Controversial axe master Ted Nugent recently admitted that his strong political stance is getting in the way of his songs being acknowledged as masterpieces.

Discussing his upcoming US tour over on Ultimate Classic Rock, the Nuge stated, "I love songwriting. I think that someday when somebody gets past the politics, somebody’s going to have to wake up and go, 'Holy sh-t, look at these songs that this crazy Detroit guitar player wrote! They're masterpieces going back to 1967 when he was a teenager!'

"You listen to songs the first Amboy Dukes album and the 'Migration' album and the 'Marriage on the Rocks/Rock Bottom' and 'Rattle My Snake' on 'Survival of the Fittest.' Listen to these songs!" Uncle Ted shouted.

Further praising his tunes, the Motor City Madman added, "'Dog Eat Dog' was a masterpiece, 'Stranglehold' is a masterpiece, 'Wang Dang Sweet Poontang' is a masterpiece! 'Crave' is a masterpiece! 'Still Raising Hell' on 'Love Grenade' is a masterpiece.

"These are monster compositions and if it wasn’t for my politics, someone would probably admit it. [Laughs] So I'm admitting it right here with Ultimate Classic Rock, because I love these songs and obviously people still love these songs because I'm going on the road for a wonderful ... I guarantee it’s going to be the greatest tour of my life," the guitarist concluded.

Nugent is set to hit the road on July 3 in Wichita Falls, Texas and trek throughout the States until August 16 performance in Fort Worth, Texas. Full tour itinerary on the official website.

Ted's new album, "Shutup&Jam" is due out on July 8 via Frontiers Records. Check out the recently-premiered new track "Never Stop Believing" below.
