Kid Rock Regrets Name Choice And Talks About Being A Dad

In a recent interview with Kid Rock in Esquire Magazine, the rocker/rapper/sometimes country artist admits that he regrets his stage name “Kid Rock”.  Robert Richie is his real name, and he thinks being referred to “Kid” when he’s 80 is pretty foolish.  Kid Rock also discusses being the father of a 17 year old while balancing his rock star lifestyle.  (Note Content)

Kenny Chesney called me. We were talking about a tour or something. He texted me real early in the morning. It must have been six in the morning. And I texted him back. And he asked me, “Were you up all night?” I said, “No, no, I’m getting up for my son.” He said, “Holy shit, don’t worry, I’m not going to tell anybody you were up this early, because it’ll ruin your image.” I go, “You can’t ruin my image.” Make no mistake: Bob Ritchie’s up early in the morning taking pictures of his son on the first day of his senior year. Kid Rock is passed out in a hotel room somewhere with four scantily clad women.

Whether you are a fan of Kid Rock or not, it is refreshing that a celebrity tells it how it is and doesn’t sugar coat his lifestyle.  It’s an interesting article that sheds some light on a sometimes misunderstood person.
