BANGOR, Maine Waterfront Concerts promoter Alex Gray said Sunday that he doesnt plan to call off Ted Nugents Bangor performance despite remarks from two city councilors that the controversial rock star shouldnt be allowed to play in the city.
Last week, Councilor Charlie Longo emailed a letter to Gray saying that the concert series shouldnt allow Nugent to perform because of comments he made during a National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis. Longo later posted the letter to his website.
During the convention, Nugent was quoted saying, If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. If you cant go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I dont even know what youre made out of.
Longo argued that a man who would make such threatening comments doesnt belong on a Bangor stage.
In the wake of one of the most fiery election seasons ever, I believe that this vitriolic, incendiary rhetoric has no place in our national discourse, he wrote.

“threw” a hissy fit.
I saw him at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, TX on Saturday. I was so impressed. He’s 64 this year. What energy and spirit this man has. Uncle Ted rocks hard!
Good for that promoter, too.
Clearly Bangor Councilor Charlie Longo is unfit to hold a position of public responsibility and trust.
It is truly frightening to have a brownshirted ignoramus like Longo wielding the levers of government. Clearly he missed his calling by living in the United States - it seems that the Soviet Union or North Korea would have been much more appropriate for Longo’s style of immature, constipated, anti-freedom ranting.
It's a joke that you apparently didn't get.
It's sort of like Southerners saying "Yew ain't from around here, are yew?". Not world-ending, but far from being a compliment.
The correct pronunciation is "BANG-gore". Folks from away still won't fool the locals, but they can fool each other. :-)
I'd practice saying "Cahd-booahd Cah-ton" (cardboard carton) a couple of hundred times before tenatively trying it out.
Pronouncing it correctly ruins the joke.
Oh got it.
Oh got it.
No problem it's kinda of a guy thing.
correction. Oh, I got it. I got it from the get go it just wasn’t funny with proper pronunciation.
