Nugent: Whole Lot of Reneging

09/26/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Hard rock guitarist Ted Nugent is having a bad run of it. Last week, the Motor City Madman was sued for a Nebraska couple for allegedly reneging on a deal made on eBay in which the pair paid $1,535 for front-row seats at a Nugent concert in Kansas plus dinner with him. This weekend, reports the Associated Press, Nugent was scheduled to get an honorary key to the city in Omaha, but Mayor Hal Daub reportedly reneged on the deal when criticism of the rocker was circulated by the animal activists People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. (Nugent is a self-avowed avid hunter.) "I have no negative feelings whatsoever," Nugent said in a statement about Mayor Daub. "He's got to do what he's got to do, and I've got to do what I've got to do."
