Sticks and stones may break bones and sometimes words do hurt people, especially when they are perceived as threats against the President of the United States. By now everyone knows Ted Nugent spewed some threatening words at President Barack Obama and other Democrats at the National Rifle Association convention last week that earned him a chat with the Secret Service, but Styx guitarist/singer James Young says politics will not come up in conversation when Styx, Nugent and REO Speedwagon kick off their tour together on May 1 in Hidalgo, TX. Young told Billboard, “You know, I don’t see any point in that, actually. I mean, Ted’s made his points very clear. And this is not about politics.”
