On this week’s show, you’ll see the time we spent with the Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent. He was in town to do a show and had called the week before to see about stopping by the shop. If youâ€™ve never met him, let me tell you, heâ€™s a walking force of nature.
We rolled out a roasted whole hog and 20 gallons of gumbo, then took him into my office and gave him his pick of a gun. He walked out with a M240 and our new 1911. We sent enough rounds down range to do a platoon of infantry proud. Then he got out on the patio and fired off Krisâ€™s rocket motor powered, blank firing, guitar gun a few times (Heâ€™s Uncle Ted , whadda ya want?). He gave Kris some good advice on the music business and told me something thatâ€™s still ringing in my ears: My people are the most loyal, devoted crew heâ€™d ever seen.
Now, I know this, but having someone who had just walked through the door that day point it out was revelatory. I forget how rare people like the ones I have here can be and I need to be better than that. People watch the show and think itâ€™s about guns and shooting and doing all this wild ass stuff you see on TV, but itâ€™s not. Itâ€™s about the people that are here with me under this roof. Theyâ€™re the ones Iâ€™m here for.
