Tommy Lee vs. Ted Nugent: Rock’s Latest War of Words
Tommy Lee and Ted Nugent appear to be in a bit of a verbal spat as of late.
In a recent interview with Blunt Force Truth, Nugent talked about appearing on Sammy Hagar’s AXS TV show Rock & Roll Road Trip and saying, “The producers wouldn’t let him near me, even though he and I go way back; we’re dear friends. They thought I was dangerous, that I’d come out with a machine gun or I’d slaughter an innocent fawn on television. This is stupidity! I said, ‘So your producers were afraid of me, but they did a show with Tommy Lee, who’s a convicted felon, domestic violence heroin addict.'”
The Nuge continued, “They’re okay with this guy, but not with the Ted Nugent ‘Kamp For Kids’ charity, teaching kids to be clean and sober. I said, ‘Sammy, coldcock those sons of bitches and get out and let’s do the show.’ So, finally, they dangerously acquiesced, and we did the number one Sammy Hagar ‘Rock & Roll Road Trip’ show.”
That exchange made the round in the press and made its way to Lee himself who took to Twitter and responded with, “Ted Nugent? ….Is that guy even still alive? ….. I thought he shot himself like 20 yrs ago.”
No word yet whether Nugent has caught wind of Lee’s response, but don’t be shocked if you do hear one from everyone’s favorite Motor City Mad Man.
