Ted Nugent Talks July 4, Hunting "Sacred Flesh" & Why Jack White Isn't Soulful

FUSE TV - Ted Nugent Talks July 4, Hunting "Sacred Flesh" & Why Jack White Isn't Soulful

Hopping from late '60s psychedelic outfit the Amboy Dukes to a wildly successful solo career in the '70s, Ted Nugent has been rocking and repping Detroit for the better part of his 66-year life. These days, the controversial classic rocker is just as well known for his candid conservative politics as for crafting "Cat Scratch Fever," but even he knows that sometimes it's best to just shut up and jam. Which, coincidentally, is the title of his upcoming album, out July 8.

SHUTUP&JAM notwithstanding, Nugent had plenty to say when I got him on the phone recently. The Motor City Madman spoke bluntly about everything from rock in 2014—he's not crazy about Jack White's soul-free new music—to the importance of Independence Day to why the "sacred flesh" he eats is different from McDonald's. And as per his M.O., he managed to mock the city I live in before I even got out a single question. Here's what the Nuge had to say.
