Even the Nuge upset over Prince's death (VIDEO)

Although often combative and controversial nowadays, The Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent, had nothing but kind words to say about the late funk icon Prince.

“Losing Glenn Frey and David Bowie and now Prince this year has taken a huge chunk out of the musical joy and musical enrichment that so benefits the people who love the soundtrack of life,” Nugent said in an interview with local media.

The two performers came at life from different perspectives, but Nugent says the musical bond they shared transcended the differences.

“Prince requested my guitar tech to bring one of my sacred Gibson Byrdland guitars to examine to be able to find out how I get the ‘Ted Nugent guitar tone,’” Nugent said.

Prince was found dead at his Minneapolis home Thursday. Throughout his life, Prince won a number of awards including Grammys, Golden Globes, and even an Academy Award.
