A Detroit man, 43, allegedly attempted to break into Kid Rock's Michigan home on July 31. Never one to sit on his opinions or to pipe down, Kid Rock posted photos of the would-be burglar on his blog and issued a warning to anyone who might attempt a similar action that he will protect his home, hearth and family from any invasions and that he will not hesitate to shoot a trespasser.
Scott Stapp and Kid Rock enjoyed the excess that came with fame in the late '90s, and Stapp captured a tryst in which he and Rock enjoyed the affections of several female groupies on tape. But in 2006, that tape went missing and ended up in the hands of Red Light District, who began selling downloads to the dismay of both musicians.
Kid Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band will embark on a summer U.S. tour that will feature fan-friendly ticket prices. The trek kicks off June 28 in Bristow, Va. and will wind around the country before wrapping up Sept. 15 in Tampa, Fla. Support bands on select dates will include Kool & The Gang, ZZ Top and Uncle Kracker.
Kid Rock's generosity knows no bounds, especially when it comes to his hometown of Detroit and by extension his home state of Michigan. The rocker's good will was on display again recently when he teamed with Pulte Homes and Operation Finally Home to have a new home built for a returning "wounded warrior" and his family.
