Ted Nugent Gets Last Laugh

Ted Nugent (news) says he’s getting the last laugh.

The rocker said he used to get teased by Jimi Hendrix and Keith Moon for not taking drugs.

“Jimi got high and Jimi is dead; I went hunting and I’m still Ted,” he said at an appearance for middle school and high school students. Nugent spoke at The Community School of Naples, where his 12-year-old son is a seventh-grader.

The kids seemed to like Nugent’s anti-drug message, even if they were a little fuzzy on who he is.

“He sang ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ but I’ve never heard it,” one 11-year-old said.
