Wildman rocker Ted Nugent has offered his services to Sir Paul McCartney - as a bodyguard.
Nugent has offered to head up the former Beatle's personal security detail when MCCartney performs in Israel on Thursday (25Sep08).
And, despite the fact the Cat Scratch Fever hitmaker is an avid hunter and MCCartney an animal rights activist, he urges the Brit to take his offer seriously after learning of death threats from Muslim extremists if the ex-Beatle plays the concert to mark Israel’s 60th birthday.
Nugent tells WENN, "Regardless that Paul and I have our obvious social, cultural, and culinary differences outside of music, I will not bend or waiver to voodoo religious whackjobs and neither should Paul."
The U.S. rocker and National Rifle Association official insists his training with military specialists and various law enforcement agencies make him the perfect security expert for rock stars like MCCartney.
He adds, "It would be my pleasure to keep this legendary musical hero safe from terrorists and mad men, and then buy him a nice dinner of tofu. I’m Dirty Harry with a ponytail, and I’m at Paul’s service.”
