    Under-rated Guitarists?

    There are quite a few on this site, right here, under your noses.
    They’re as good, or better than a lot of “big name - Or even just notable” players that are adored by many.

    Whenever I listen to their clips, here, or on Youtube, or Soundcloud ( etc ), I’m humbled and amazed by their talent.

    So just a big shout-out the the Strat-Talkers.

    Do my eyes deceive me or is that a Gretsch Country Gentleman I see being employed as a funk machine?

    Note the last line in the OP. Pays to read the entire post, not just the title.

    This works. Really well. )

    Rhythm and Blues. It's in the first post. The last line.

    Terd Nugget has a different kind of R&B in him. He's a repugnant bloviator. And I cleaned it up. LoL.

    I never was a fan of Prince, basically just because I wasn't into his particular style of music. But I would give him a listen once in a great while, and one day it just dawned on me. "This dude can play!"

    I always found you to be an "objective" individual. This sounds a bit personal.:eek:

    Took you off of ignore for this.

    As a veteran, it seems to me you'd feel the same way:

    In an interview with published by High Times magazine in 1977, Ted Nugent, claimed he had engaged in certain behavior to deliberately fail a physical exam in 1967 and be qualified 4-F (not acceptable for military service):

    Interviewer: How did you get out of the draft?

    Ted Nugent: Ted was a young boy, appearing to be a hippie but quite opposite in fact, working hard and playing hard, playing rock and roll like a deviant. People would question my sanity, I played so much. So I got my notice to be in the draft. Do you think I was gonna lay down my guitar and go play army? Give me a break! I was busy doin’ it to it. I had a career Jack. If I was walkin’ around, hippying down, getting’ loaded and pickin’ my ass like your common curs, I’d say “Hey yeah, go in the army. Beats the poop out of scuffin’ around in the gutters.” But I wasn’t a gutter dog. I was a hard workin’, mother****in’ rock and roll musician.

    I got my physical notice 30 days prior to. Well, on that day I ceased cleansing my body. No more brushing my teeth, no more washing my hair, no baths, no soap, no water. Thirty days of debris build. I stopped shavin’ and I was 18, had a little scraggly beard, really looked like a hippie. I had long hair, and it started gettin’ kinky, matted up. Then two weeks before, I stopped eating any food with nutritional value. I just had chips, Pepsi, beer-stuff I never touched-buttered poop, little jars of Polish sausages, and I’d drink the syrup, I was this side of death, Then a week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. poop, piss the whole shot. My pants got crusted up.

    See, I approached the whole thing like, Ted Nugent, cool hard-workin’ dude, is gonna wreak havoc on these imbeciles in the armed forces. I’m gonna play their own game, and I’m gonna destroy ’em. Now my whole body is crusted in poop and piss. I was ill. And three or four days before, I started stayin’ awake. I was close to death, but I was in control. I was extremely antidrug as I’ve always been, but I snorted some crystal methedrine. Talk about one wounded motherf*cker. A guy put up four lines, and it was for all four of us, but I didn’t know and I’m vacuuming that poop right up. I was a walking, talking hunk of human poop. I was six-foot-three of sin. So the guys took me down to the physical, and my nerves, my emotions were distraught. I was not a good person. I was wounded. But as painful and nauseous as it was — ’cause I was really into bein’ clean and on the ball — I made gutter swine hippies look like football players. I was deviano.

    So I went in, and those guys in uniform couldn’t believe the smell. They were ridiculin’ me and pushin’ me around and I was cryin’, but all the time I was laughin’ to myself. When they stuck the needle in my arm for the blood test I passed out, and when I came to they were kicking me into the wall. Then they made everybody take off their pants, and I did, and this sergeant says, “Oh my God, put those back on! You f*cking swine you!” Then they had a urine test and I couldn’t piss, But my poop was just like ooze, man, so I poop in the cup and put it on the counter. I had poop on my hand and my arm. The guy almost puked. I was so proud. I knew I had these chumps beat. The last thing I remember was wakin’ up in the ear test booth and they were sweepin’ up. So I went home and cleaned up.

    They took a putty knife to me. I got the street rats out of my hair, ate some good steaks, beans, potatoes, cottage cheese, milk. A couple of days and I was ready to kick ass. And in the mail I got this big juicy 4-F. They’d call dead people before they’d call my ass. But you know the funny thing about it? I’d make an incredible army man. I’d be a colonel before you knew what hit you, and I’d have the baddest bunch of motherf*ckin’ killers you’d ever seen in my platoon. But I just wasn’t into it. I was too busy doin’ my own thing, you know?

    Questioned about that account some thirty years later (by which time Nugent was known as a staunch political conservative, a supporter of the Republican Party, and an advocate of hunting and gun ownership rights) in an interview with the UK’s Independent newspaper, Nugent disclaimed that previous account of his draft-evading activities as story he had made up and fed to a gullible High Times reporter and asserted that he actually had avoided the draft through the legitimate means of a student deferment:

    He has the rage, but he doesn’t have the war record. At 18, he was called up to serve in Vietnam. “In 1977 you gave an interview to High Times [the cannabis user’s journal of record] where you claimed you defecated in your clothes to avoid the draft.”

    “I never **** my pants to get out of the draft,” says Nugent, good-naturedly.

    “You also told them you took crystal meth before the medical — as a result of which, and I quote: ‘I got this big juicy 4F.'”

    “Unbelievable. Meth,” he replies, in a tone of deep sarcasm. “Yes, that’s my drug of choice. You’ve got to realise that these interviewers would arrive with glazed eyes and I would make stories up. I never did crystal meth. And I never pooped my pants.”

    “But you did dodge the draft.”

    “I had a 1Y [student deferment]. I enrolled at Oakland Community College.”

    “You said then that you wanted ‘to teach the stupid bastards in the military a lesson’. I’d have thought you’d have loved the army. Guns. Travel. Danger.”

    “Back then, I didn’t even understand what World War II was.”

    “So basically,” — I admit that I have, unaccountably, started to speak Nugent — “you didn’t want to get your Michigan ass blown off in Vietnam.”

    “Correct. I did not want to get my ass blown off in Vietnam.”

    Yes. He shat his pants. Thus...Terd Nugget.

    And he's a liar. Lyin' Terd Nugget.

    And...after the way you treated my friend Jim here on the forum, you go back to your parking space.
