RIDING WITH THE KID: Kid Rock
It's been a long road for Robert Ritchie to this point. Better known as Kid Rock, the singer-songwriter's debut album, Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast, hit the streets in 1990, but it wasn't until 1998's Devil Without a Cause that he broke into the mainstream.
Since then, it's been a tumultuous path to his first number one record, last year's Rock N Roll Jesus. People probably know him more for his offstage antics than for his music. How many people know he plays guitar, banjo, keyboards, drums and a handful of other instruments?
