"Still good for country." That's hysterical. As far as charging for signatures; he's right in that they are just using him to make money. But he'll sign it if you're sincere. Neo got his guitar signed by Ted with no problems.

I guess it's hard to tell but Ted's not really dealing with fans in the second video. He's not at a table signing autographs for fans. He's trying to get into his truck. The guys that are bugging him are professional memorabilia hounds that run all over getting **** signed then selling it on Ebay and in comic book stores.

 

 

They get twenty $15 pick guards signed then toss them on a $99 Squire and try to sell if for $1500. Given Teds well documented history for making money for others while being taken to the cleaners himself I can see his point.

Ted is a fine, upstanding, capitalist, conservative with his head on the right way. IMO he is a breath of fresh air in a world where most people say what the listener wants to hear. As for that argument with Rosanne Barr, he embarrassed her and her intellect with straight answers. He was spot on with most of his points.

 

Now where is my fire retardant suit?...

That's cool. You're right. I'll give him a break this time. Plus, the guy has... or at least had... some SERIOUS hair. [thumbup]

 

Plus, if it were me, I'd be begging everybody to ask for my autograph, so I'm probably a little jealous. [glare]

True, I'll give him that but I still think he's an idiot

I agree with many of his points, but he just takes **** way too far nowadays. We go to see him for his music, not his mouth.

 

I'd much rather see him singing with David Letterman than trying to be a politician. Ah, those were the good days.

I enjoy him for both actually. One of the only true rock and roll rebels left alive. [thumbup]

 

I love it when he talks about guns. I hate it when he gets too deep into politics. Making a claim like his "I'll be dead or in jail" statement was rather stupid in my opinion.

It was just an off the cuff comment. If he had said that about W. he would be held up as a brave hero. [rolleyes] Either way I don't think it was nearly the big deal it was made out to be.

 

Yeah.

 

Unfortunately, you're right. Not by me, though!

 

And of course, the media takes things and blows them out of proportion.

 

It's not just his politics that turn me off, it's every other musician or celebrity that gets into politics as well. Like the Dixie Chicks. As Alice Cooper so proudly put it, that stuff is treason against rock n' roll!

I feel this way about Springsteen too.

 

what was that saying about opinions and everyone having one again? :)
