clyph: Diogenes: Officers working at Nugent's Sunday night concert were told that 55-year-old Mick Brown was intoxicated, had stolen the cart and was driving it recklessly on a foot path.

How rock and roll.

*rolls eyes*

So it wasn't legally a motor vehicle and it wasn't on public roadway. How can thy justify that as DWI. Reckless endangerment, maybe. Disturbing the peace, probably. Public intoxication, definitely. But DWI? That's just insane.


He did drive it on a public roadway at one point in time. The story linked to the article doesn't tell the entire story.

Takes a lot of work to live up to a name like Wild Mick
 
2012-07-09 06:09:05 PM  
Well, at least Mick doesn't seem to be hitting the nose candy like he did in the '80s-'90s... When he was in Lynch Mob, he was personally financing the Medellin cartel...
 
2012-07-09 06:10:00 PM  
Well I guess now that Mick Brown's breakin' the chains, it's into the fire when he faces a DUI charge that's sure to look like Mr. Scary on his criminal record. If Mr. Brown isn't careful, he could wind up alone again with a jaded heart and under lock and key.

The Nuge is probably eating his heart out. Right after he shot him with an arrow.

Ted Nugent had 3 really good albums. Were they "cock rock" albums? Sure, but who cares. (Are there any c*nt rock albums?) He was as good of a rock lead guitarist as anybody, and the first 3 albums were great showcases for his playing.

However, he never wrote anything good after 1977 and his guitar skills could only take him so far. Then he went off the deep end with his reactionary right-wing attention-whoring. Screw him, he hates America.

Gyrfalcon: Driving while intoxicated means just that. Driving ANYTHING while you're drunk is by definition DWI. People get arrested for DWIs while driving bikes, boats, lawn mowers and horses


I am aware of that fact that they do it; my point is that it's an unwarranted expansion of the law. Motor vehicle codes refer to LICENSED MOTOR VEHICLES on PUBLIC ROADWAYS. Period. Anything more than that is exceeding the legitimate role of governmental authority.

The government has no legal authority to license riding a horse, or a bike, or a lawnmower; suspending a person's drivers license because they were riding a HORSE drunk is beyond insanity. This is the perfect example why government cannot be trusted with power - you give them a little power for a good reason and they pervert it to do things that were not intended under the law.

If you want to make Riding a Horse While Intoxicated illegal, you need to pass RAHWI law. It may be a crime, but that crime is NOT DWI. Words mean things. Twisting the letter of the law only erodes the people's faith in the law.

you gotta love aging rock stars. Some age gracefully, some burn out, some die - then there's these guys that still think they are thin, talented, attractive, and relevant.

Just saw Alice Cooper. He's old, he knows it, but still kicked ass anyway.

I see.

Drunkass drummers, good. Pot smoking musicians, bad. I always thought Ted had a No Drugs AND Alcohol policy for his band. I guess he had to drop the alcohol part to keep in line with his sponsors, fans and political supporters.

Saw him in concert in the 80s, 90s and 2000s ( always a cheap show ). Guy rocks, but needs to STFU.

/ they got you in a stranglehold Teddy, like a dog in heat
 
2012-07-09 06:50:10 PM  
Those cops got Mickrolled!

Frankly, if I had to listen to Nugent all day, I'd want to be drunk too. Even if you agree with him, he has to be irritating.

2012-07-09 06:57:19 PM  

Screamin: If the only Nugent song you know is "Stranglehold", you're not paying attention and I pity you. You can hate his politics or his personality all you want but that guy has made and continues to make great records and Wild Mick Brown is from Dokken, he's no slouch on drums. Seems like Dave Grohl got busted for DUI on a golf cart a few years ago as well.


Yeah, but Dave Grohl IS Rock 'n Roll, so there's the difference.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Keith Moon is spinning in his smashed-television-lined, heroin-laden grave.


One of the funniest Keith Moon stories I ever heard goes like this:

The band check out of the hotel, running late. Halfway to the airport Moon shrieks, "Jesus, we gotta go back! Turn around!" The manager and band are like, "Keith, we're already late. No way." Moon: "You don't understand! It's a farking emergency!"

So they turn around. Moon gets out of the limo and disappears inside the hotel. A few minutes pass. When he returns, the band and manager ask, "What the fark was so goddamned important?"

"I forgot to smash the television."

/no idea if it's true or not

SurelyShirley: Yeah, but Dave Grohl IS Rock 'n Roll, so there's the difference.


Grohl is also widely regarded as a super nice guy. Nugent, eh, he's a rabid conservative. In my experience that means he's fundamentally a jerk.

Wild Mick Brown! Fantastic rock drummer. Got to meet him and drink Dos Equis with him watching him play with George Lynch. Really nice, fun, down to earth guy.

So he stole a Honda?
 
2012-07-09 07:22:23 PM  
Hey Frank Sinatra once stole a golf cart while drunk, too - but he crashed it through the front window of the Sands casino ON PURPOSE, and then tried to assault the casino boss Carl Cohen. Hey, someone at the Sands cut off Frank's credit!

Needless to say, Frank wasn't arrested, so no "dildo mugshot" for the episode.

Cake Hunter: Typical fedzilla goons. Picking on a guy who is so painfully low he has to drum for ted Nugent. Give the guy a break. He's at rock bottom and just wanted to numb the pain and ride in the tiny car.


So why didn't he score a trey of smack and rent a Smartcar, like a normal person?
 
2012-07-09 07:39:18 PM  

Stephen_Falken: Dude this is just sad. Once upon a time not so long ago, rock n roll mayhem meant getting in fights with the cops, wrecking into a train at 100 mph while shooting smack, driving across state lines with a 17-year old. You know, something spectacular and worth a news story. But now, just look at this; a f*cking golf cart? Guy looks like a fat lesbian trucker. This is why we can't have bad things.


You probably like White Lion, and Stryper, too.
If you have a blog, it sucks.

Grace Slick said it best:

Slick, who was never shy about the idea of getting old, stated that the main reason she retired from the music business was that "all rock-and-rollers over the age of 50 look stupid and should retire". In a 2007 interview, she repeated her belief that "you can do jazz, classical, blues, opera, country until you're 150, but rap and rock and roll are really a way for young people to get that anger out."

Mugato: I thought Nugent made sure that all his people were "straight edge". But I read that like 20 years ago,


He also wrote a song titled "Journey to the center of the mind," apparently while not f*cked up.

[thehelplessdancer.files.wordpress.com image 481x337]


I'm going with his whole "straight edge" thing is the same as him becoming a chickenhawk after shiatting his pants to get out of the draft. Self-loathing and overcompensation to convince himself and others that he is something he's not.

Also, Ramones did a cover that is 1000x better than Ted's, and more appropriate being sung by guys that embraced the fact that they love eating acid.

I think the song was actually written by one of the other guys in the Amboy Dukes. IIRC the singer has called bullshiat on Ted's claim that he didn't know what it was about, and has said that Ted was not quite as clean and sober as he wants everyone to believe he is. Hard to believe this tool used to hang out with the MC5.
