Rocker Ted Nugent Attends State of Union Address

WASHINGTON D.C. - Rock music artist Ted Nugent, who has a home in Central Texas, attended President Obama's State of the Union address Monday night in Washington, D.C.

The gun loving musician was a guest of Texas Congressman Steve Stockman.

CNN grabbed a quick interview with Nugent as he was entering the Capitol building before the speech.

When asked what his message would be Monday night, Nugent said, "Freedom.  Freedom and independence, rugged individualism and leave us alone".

The musician has been outspoken against President Obama's policies and was interviewed by the Secret Service after he said he would be "dead or in jail" if Barack Obama was re-elected.

He always carries a weapon with him, but this night was an exception.

"I'm butt naked.  I've never been so naked in all my life.  If something happens, you're gonna have to call somebody else because I can't do squat to help you right now.  I don't even have a pocket knife on me," Nugent explained to a reporter.

He joked to the New York Times he would be "at least 20 pounds lighter" listening to the speech.
