Brothers Meet Kid Rock in Melbourne
Brothers Aaron and Christopher Gillin, who suffer from Duchenne muscular dystrophy and are confined to wheelchairs, launched a Facebook campaign to meet American musician Kid Rock when he toured Australia with rock group Bon Jovi.
The campaign came to a close on Saturday night when the brothers were invited backstage to meet their idol after his Melbourne performance.
Aaron was still on cloud nine when he returned home to Warrnambool last night.
“It’s still hard to believe we actually got to meet him,” Aaron told The Standard.
“He was really nice, very easy to talk to. He’s one of the nicest musicians I’ve ever met.
“He sat and talked to us like we were old friends for about 40 minutes.”
Hey Rebel Soldiers
My friend Dom Raiola has not only been a soldier for the Detroit Lions, but for the city of Detroit. Let's make sure he gets his due and vote him into the pro bowl.
Spread Some Cheer in the Name of Kid Rock
This holiday season we want to honor the brave men and women who protect our freedom year-round, 24-7. For the next two weeks, we are asking Kid Rock fans to donate funds to help us send these packages. Only $25 sends one package overseas. You can donate as much or as little as you want - each dollar helps in accomplishing our goal of sending 50 packages and delivering some joy to the troops in the name of Kid Rock.
