ALEX COLE, International recording artist and retro-rock musician, will be joining TED NUGENT as Special Guest on the California / Arizona tour 2019 “The Music Made Me Do It Again!”
ALEX COLE, lead guitar, vocals and composer, fronts his 3-piece blues/rock power trio. His music is all original material aptly fitting into the new and cutting edge genre of “RETRO-ROCK”. When you hear his music it will sound new, but pleasantly familiar and remind you of the classic bands who inspired Alex to start writing and performing his own music: AC/DC, Whitesnake, Van Halen and Ted Nugent. The way Alex attacks the stage with his aggressive guitar sounds and sends his dynamic energy out to the crowd is something to be experienced. It’s pure Rock ‘n’ Roll! The vibe is timeless.

Ted Nugent has weighed in on the killing of Cecil the lion, calling the story “a lie“, according to classicrock.com.
US dentist Walter Palmer caused outrage when he shot and killed Zimbabwe’s most famous animal in what he believed was a legal hunt.
But Cecil was being monitored as part of an Oxford University study into lion conservation and was a major tourist attraction at the Hwange National Park – Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve.
Nugent, who is known for his pro-hunting stance, was drawn into the conversation on Facebook when he was asked for his thoughts on the incident.
He says: “The whole story is a lie. It was a wild lion from a ‘park’ where hunting is legal and essential beyond the park borders.
“All animals reproduce every year and would run out of room/food to live without hunting. I will write a full piece on this joke ASAP. God are people stupid.”
Palmer and his guides reportedly lured Cecil from the park before Palmer shot the beast with a bow and arrow. They then caught up with the injured lion 40 hours later where it was shot with a rifle and beheaded.
Palmer said he regretted his actions but maintains he had no idea the lion was a local favourite.
Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum called Nugent a “sick individual” last year when the guitarist posed with a picture of a dead groundhog.
TED NUGENT has apologised for referring to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel” last month. He did not, however, offer contrition to Obama. “I do apologize – not necessarily to the President – but on behalf of much better men than myself,” he said to radio host Ben Ferguson, according to CNN. Furthermore, he called that word grouping “street-fighter terminology” and said he wished he used “more understandable language,” such as “violator of his oath to the Constitution.”
Last month, in an interview with Guns.com, Nugent fielded a question about the 2016 presidential race. As he bloviated about conservative ideas, it led him to this statement: “I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever vigilant, but not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America. I am heartbroken but I am not giving up.” He also called for Democrats to be put in jail.
“I apologize for using the term,” he said in his radio interview. “I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics.”
This apology may have been referring to how his words may be seen as representing other Republicans from his state, such as Governor Rick Perry and Senator Ted Cruz. The latter previously told CNN that he did not support Nugent’s opinions. “Those sentiments there, of course, I don’t agree with them,” he said. “You’ve never heard me say such a thing and nor would I.”
Neither Cruz nor Perry have ruled out campaigning with Nugent in the future. The rocker lately has been campaigning with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott in his gubernatorial bid against Texas State Senator Wendy Davis.
Legendary rocker Ted Nugent, who is an avid supporter of gun rights and antagonist of President Barack Obama, was interviewed by Piers Morgan on this past Monday night’s (February 4) edition of CNN‘s “Piers Morgan Tonight”. A clip of his appearance on the program can be seen below.
After Morgan asked Nugent to explain to him “in the least inflammatory way possible” why Americans need the AR-15 assault rifle, Nugent said: “99.99% of the gun owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. Perfectly safe. Perfectly harmless. Wonderful, loving, generous, giving, caring people. Would you leave us the hell alone? Go after the nutjobs, go after the murderers, because I don’t know any. We need to lock up the bad guys and when people show dangerous, murderous intent, which every one of these mass murderers showed — all their neighbors, their family, their teachers, their fellow students, they all knew they were crazy but, Piers, we didn’t stop them because we’re worried about hurting their feelings. We have a madman problem in America… let’s focus on that and leave the rest of us alone.”
Nugent proceeded to slam the “scammer-in-chief” on everything from Benghazi to Egypt, saying he was re-elected by a “clueless majority.” “I don’t agree with President Obama on any of this,” the rocker said.
Legendary rocker Ted Nugent, who is an avid supporter of gun rights and antagonist of President Barack Obama, has blasted TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider for “falling for the big lie” by accusing the guitarist of having dodged the draft.
Speaking to AOL‘s Noisecreep, Snider stated about Nugent‘s recent comments about Barack Obama and gun control: “Ted‘s always been a gun-toting conservative. But what gets me is that he was actually a draft dodger! I mean, to the point where he didn’t bathe for a week, and vomited on himself to deliberately avoid the draft. I totally understand why he did that, but all of these Republicans who love Ted don’t seem to know or remember that too well. It’s crazy that he’s become one of the voices of Conservative America even though he was a draft dodger. If you don’t believe me, Google it.”
After the Snider interview was published earlier today, Nugent took to his Twitter to respond: “Shame on @deesnider for falling for the big lie I challenge u to man up to the truth We xpected btr”
Nugent recently wrote an open letter to Vice President Joe Biden, offering his advice and suggestions on how to focus on the mental health care system to stop potentially violent citizens from acting out crimes.
According to Media Matters For America, following the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, the cable network Discovery told Fox News that it has canceled its reality series American Guns. In October, Discovery aired a one-hour special called Ted Nugent‘s Gun Country starring NRA board member and Washington Times columnist Ted Nugent, despite his history of inflammatory rhetoric.
While Discovery has described Ted Nugent’s Gun Country as a “one-hour special,” Nugent claimed that Discovery “want[s] to do it as a regular feature.” Nugent has also said the show would help him advance his view in the “culture war.”
The episode of Ted Nugent’s Gun Country that aired in October showed Nugent shooting a scimitar-horned oryx, an animal extinct in the wild, and using a .50-caliber Browning armor-piercing machine gun to blow holes in a steel door used by a team of “preppers” to protect their armory.
Raw Story reported that Ted Nugent won’t return to Discovery “in any form or fashion.” A Discovery spokesperson told the outlet that while Ted Nugent’s Gun Country didn’t draw high ratings when it aired in October, the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, also played a role.
