Donnelly / Grogan: Kid Rock Still On Top @ The Midland by AMC

You gotta give Kid Rock some credit

I mean, first of all, he’s still around. That’s saying something right there.
 
He’s still touring and selling out venues much bigger than the Midland, which he sold out a few days ago.
 
Where are the other rap-rock bands that broke through around the same time, like Limp Bizkit and Korn?
 
Who cares, really?
 
Kid Rock has remained relevant by morphing over the years from DJ to rapper to rap-rocker to rocker.  And when that genre was taken behind the woodshed, he shifted again. This time to dirty country hillbilly where he found perhaps the biggest success of his career by releasing his most mainstream album yet, 2010’s Born Free.

    Music is very subjective
    …but to me, Kid Rock is the least talented person in the history of rock and roll. He isn’t even trailer park white trash, that would be offending trailer parks. But, since this is a country that makes the Kardashians rich, then I’m not surprised he sells out every gig. If Warren Zevon were still alive, he’sd get his ass kicked for using his song.

    I’ll Give Kid Credit
    For doing the charity gigs, but not as a “musician” as I think he’s extremely weak. And define relevance. Because he still sells out to the LCD? Because he has a few lame crossover hits w/ flavor the month country singers? Great examples of rap rock acts that flamed out years ago to prove your point. As far as I know, 311 has been milking that schtick alot longer (before it even was a genre) and alot better and Linkin Park is still around and doing well, but they’ve evolved somewhat and unlike Mr.Ritchie, they haven’t lowered themselves yet to the point of taking the music of other artists and very loosely reworking it for their own gain.
