When Jimi played the National Anthem...



...at Woodstock he did it as a veteran (Army Airborne).

When Ted Nugent did it in 2009 on FOX Noise, at the Alamo with Glenn Beck, he did so as someone who left shit in his pants for a week to get out of going to Vietnam.

Tell this to your RW family members and friends but be prepared for head explosions...lol.

9. I saw Jimi Hendrix and Ted Nugent on the same stage

August 17th, 1968 at the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium. Nugent was then lead guitarist for the Amboy Dukes and was a warm up act for Hendrix. I remember that Nugent actually sounded pretty good. In 1968 I'd never heard of him and my fellow musician friends in the audience were asking ourselves 'who is this guy?'
A couple of warm up acts later, Hendrix hit the stage. After a couple of tunes, he laid down his Fender strat and picked up a red Gibson Les Paul, holding it upside down of course, and tore into Red House. He virtually melted the rafters in that old building and my fellow musicians were smiling at each other not even remembering who Ted Nugent was. That was the first show of the day and I had tickets for two shows. Nugent didn't even show up for the evening show. Nugent over the years has never said a kind word about Hendrix but he knows who was the better musician.

49. I'm not sure of the uniform at that time.

It may be his basic training uniform. My point is that he was in the military unlike the coward Ted Nugent who constantly refers to Jimi in the negative. After completing basic training, he was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division and stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. This is where he met Billy Cox and spent a lot of time in Nashville Tennessee.

36. We (four of us) took off for Bethel on a spur of the moment decision on Wednesday...

 

We filled the trunk of my Chevy with Spaghetti-Os and Sterno, sleeping bags and a very versatile tarp. And got there two days early. The stage was not built yet.

It was me, my roommate (who had been my neighbor when we lived with our parents,) his girlfriend, and a mysterious friend of his who was introduced to me as a member of the Sunshine Brotherhood. He had a Sucrets box full of tabs of the neatest acid I've ever had. And if you said "Ah!" in front of him he would pop one in your mouth.

We were camped next to David Peel and his group. Music all night long!

We never bought tickets.

38. Cool story.

Did you ever write about it (the less incriminating parts at least)?

I somewhere have a many page account I wrote later about that weekend.

At a recent dinner party we discovered there were three of us that had gone to Woodstock: Myself as a more or less normal high school kid, another who was there as part of the Hog Farm collective, and a third guy who had hitchhiked there, looked around at all the 'long haired freaks' and decided to give away his ticket, turn around and walk away! Of course he admitted he has been ribbed mercilessly for that decision ever since!

39. Funny you should ask...

 

I wrote for an underground newspaper at the time. But the publisher told me he had Woodstock covered. When I got back home I had a bunch of messages to call him. "Did you make it to Woodstock?" he asked. The stringer he had assigned never made it.

I wrote an article, and it was published, and I got paid (by the column-inch.) But he re-ran that article for years on the anniversary of Woodstock.

I think I have a hard copy in a scrapbook somewhere. I wrote about everything, without admitting to anything. The only thing I left out was my introduction to the penicillin-resistant strain of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, that I got from one of David Peel's groupies. I couldn't talk about it.

BTW, did you have any connections to the NRBQ (my favorite group) when they lived in Clinton Corners?

My regards to David, if you see him.


Here's a (latest incarnation of) NRBQ track. IMO, they are the greatest. (At least of the obscure bands.)


Over the years, I have met John Melenkamp, Bonnie Raitt, Joe Cocker, Elvis Costello, Peter Yarrow, and Jimi Hendrix, when they came to see them. There are others I forgot.

Enjoy!

52. I think that

you can download/record almost all of his records from his web site.

David connected John with the struggle in Ireland; the $ from "Luck of the Irish" went there. That's a big part of the Nixon war on Lennon that hasn't been disclosed by FOI documents.

Record collections can be overwhelming to move. I still have mine; recently had a friend put some Hendrix playing acousic on CDs for me. I've got to invest in the technology to do that!

15. Is it true that Jimi was discharged from the Army for having

 

"homosexual tendencies"?

My friend (a huge Hendrix fan) told me that there is a book out that details his discharge with Jimi's personal Army records. The author of the book said that he told people that he was injured in a parachute accident to take away from the real reason for his discharge.

I don't know and personally don't care if he said this to get out of the Army. I do know that he is one of the greatest musicians to have ever walked the planet. His 3 studio albums with the Experience are flawless in their productions.

25. Nugent is an enormous hypocrite

He's blasted people like Hendrix for promoting the so-called drug culture of the late 60s. And yet, Ted Nugent made a lot of money in producing records that glorified drugs. His greatest hit record, Journey To The Center Of Your Mind was a major drug anthem of the 60s, a song Nugent wrote. In fact, the entire album of the same name was about drugs with an album cover consisting of drug paraphernalia and with songs entitled Mary Wanna among other drug references. When asked about his profiteering off the drug culture, Nugent pretended that he didn't know the album of the Amboy Dukes of which he was the leader was about drugs. And I don't believe him when he describes being a rock star during the 60s and not using drugs.

The problem with Nugent I think is that he's bitter over his career. He was a very competent riffmaster on the guitar who could play some fast and tasty lines, but he couldn't take it to the level of creative brilliance like Jimi Hendrix or Jeff Beck. His name never became synonymous with greatness on the guitar and his songwriting skills weren't enough to carry him, either.

26. One other thing about this. Nugent "The Coward" also has a regular thing of putting down Hendrix as

nothing but a drug addled addict hippie. Hendrix liked beer more than any thing and only used illicit drugs occasionally. Not unlike many people do when they are are young and experimenting. Don't believe everything you read about Jimi Hendrix. The majority is myth and legend and used to sell more books and line the pockets of the 1%. Jimi was ripped off just like all of the other black artists throughout the music business past. Even his age was hedged to make him more appealing to the younger demographic. The music business is brutal.
Hendrix's death was a tragedy that didn't need to happen. He had a brutal touring schedule that some human beings would wilt under and used uppers to get up and downers to sleep just like people do today as we are all bombarded by the drug companies with their daily commercials.

29. True story

about Hendrix and Nugent that somewhat illustrates the differences between the two:

As you write, Hendrix was a veteran but that did not stop him from asking Nugent "What's with the gun?" when they met at a concert at which Nugent was carrying.

Even back then, Hendrix could see there was something off about him.
