Anthony Bourdain +
Ted Nugent

“I find just about everything that comes out of his mouth violently offensive.
But we both like barbecue.”

Some friendships you wouldn’t believe unless there was proof.

In the wake of the tragic death of Anthony Bourdain, here’s something we bet you never knew – turns out he and Ted Nugent were close friends.

Watch a PBS video where Bourdain offers various points of advice, and talks about how food is the answer to world peace (about 1:30 into this video if you don’t care for the other advice). “I think I was talking about Ted Nugent. I find just about everything that comes out of his mouth violently offensive. But we both like barbecue. That is some sort of common ground for a discussion, and surely that’s not a bad thing.” Nugent called Bourdain his “kill it and grill it blood brother.”
