Kid Rock calls me directly. When I tell him I’m surprised a big star would do so, he snorts: “I can dial a fucking phone. I don’t believe in all that publicist crap. ‘Don’t ask this, don’t ask that.’ Ask anything.” And it’s true, he’ll answer any question, with a chuckle and a drag off a cigar. For a rocker with an album called Cocky and a police record for a fight in a Waffle House, Rock is remarkably upbeat, down-to-earth and flat-out hilarious. Just about every interview with the 40-year-old Michigan native notes, you know what, he’s actually a great guy, believe it or not. “Story of my life,” the artist otherwise known as Bob Ritchie says. “Story. Of. My. Life.”
