David Crosby? ...Crosby should talk..he's not much more talented than the Nuge.

Stranglehold
Great White Buffalo
Cat Scratch Fever
Snakeskin Cowboys

All classics ....
also like a less well known song "Queen of the Forest" ...lead vocals by Derek St. Holmes.

Just to educate you,David Crosby has been inducted into the Rock &Roll HOF twice.With the Byrds and CSN.The man has more talent in his thumb than Ted Nugent will ever see.

Maybe so...but I'm no fan of that lazy druggie
He was so stoned all the time he was kicked out if The Byrds in 1967,
and closed to being booted from CSN(&Y) too.

That being said....I love his song from CSN debut album, "Long Time Gone"
And he was a master of singing harmony, helping the Byrds with their "sound"
along with McGuinn's trademark 12 string.
Thanks for educating me

Ted Nugent was friend's with one of my friend's brothers.

Her brother was a part time drug dealer/long haul trucker. This was the 70's. I'm sure Nugent was friends with him so he could mess with his CB radio.

Lol well...? I can't name one song of his.

Aside from that, truly talented performing artists are overlooked regularly. For God's sake, Connie Francis had a string of pop hits, and was never inducted, either. And despite his decades as a comedian, and raising almost $3 billion for MDA over the course of 60+ years, Jerry Lewis was never honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Ted Nugent? Gimmeabreak.

As a young teen, the cover of Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever" turned me off on him forever. Eeeeeewwwwww.

You questioned his talent and tried to compare David Crosby to Nugent and failed on both attempts,education seemed in order.

Yeah, right....David Crosby is sooooo talented.

Not the most talented in both the Byrds and CSN (&Y).

Just an passable guitar player at best, ok songwriter, very good at harmony vocaks
I'll give you that.

In the Byrds both Gene Clark and Roger McGuinn were more talented,
Gene Clark wrote some amazing songs early on before cracked and had to leave
the band in early 1966. Was lead vocalist on his songs as well

Roger McGuinn was the face of Byrds, the only one that stuck around for the entire
1964-1973 original time span of the group.
It was his expert 12 string electric playing that gave the Byrds their signature sound.

In CSN(&Y) Stephen Stills imo easily more talented than Crosby, ditto for Neil Young,
only Graham Nash could be considered a bit less talented than Crosby.

Like him or hate him...when it comes to electric guitar...Ted Nugent can play circles around Crosby.
