First...I'd like to say Kudo's with much respect to Kid Rock and TBT for showing their gratitude & appreciation to their loyal fans aboard the Chillin The Most Cruise. I must admit I was surprised to read the email I received from Sixthman, stating that Kid Rock & TBT would be meeting, greeting, and taking a photo with each and every fan aboard the Chillin Cruise. I was surprised in particular that Kid Rock himself would be doing such, as over the years from reading (watching) manyKid Rock relatedmedia articles, interviews, as well as fan club posts...have drawn the conclusion that Kid was reserved and shy so to speak, with meeting fans, especially in suchlarge numbers, or among crowds of fans.
Yet again I find myself in amazement of what considerate, appreciative, and respectful people Kid and each member of TBT are. No doubt it will take hours for them to accomplish the goal of meeting & taking a photo with approximately 1800 admiring fans aboard the ship. I didn't think I could gain any more respect for Kid & TBT than what I already held, but I was wrong...my respect for them as a fan continues to grow with each year I've been a loyal fan, which is a decade long now.
That said, I've had the honor and privilege of meeting & chatting some with Kid Rock in the past, and there really is nothing I can think of to say to him that is ofgreat importance or significance. Therefore, the thought occurred to me earlier this evening...of the many fan clubthreads I've read over the years relating to what fans would say to Kid Rock in particular, but TBT as well...if given the opportunity. I know there are many fans of which would love to be aboard the Chillin The Most Cruise, that for whatever reason are unable to. I wish we all could be aboard, however...that is in a perfect world.
With reflecting upon those past discussions related to meeting Kid Rock and what one would say to him...I thought of starting this discussion thread here at the fan club...offering each of you not able to go on the cruise, a chance to say something to Kid Rock in particular, but also TBT. My idea is for you to post your message to Kid and TBT in this thread, please keep all replies to the point, not replying to one anothers posts in this thread...as I intend to print the entire thread and hand it to Kid Rock personally, and will take additional copies to TBT also, assuming there may be messages for the band as well.
I have heard that Kid Rock keeps all things given to him by his fans, and assume that will be the case with the printed thread of personal fan messages to him. I assume he will at some point read through all the messages when appropriate, possibly after the cruise and in his more leisurely alone time.
So here's your chance my fellow loyal Kid Rock fans...say what you want to Kid Rock and TBT, andI give you my wordit will be personally delivered to them by me when I'm given my 'fan' opportunity aboard the Chillin Ship to meet Kid Rock and TBT...no middle ground, no mail sorting, etc....rather your message hand delivered in person by me, and you are assured it will be receivedby the man and his band directly. :)
I intend to print this thread Tuesday evening some time, as I fly to Tampa Wednesday morning the 28th.
