Shauna O'Donnell of MuenMagazine.net recently interviewed Black Stone Cherry drummer John Fred. Here is an excerpt where John praises Kid Rock on embracing many genres of music:
In a sense, I have to respect Kid Rock because he is the only artist in the past decade that really embraced so many great genres of music and at the same time kept it going. I can’t think of anybody else that has done that. We are good friends with Bobby. We did that tour with Skynard and him in 2009. He has so many different fans and that is really what you want. I think the worst thing an artist can do is become pigeon-holed or backed in the corner. You want a strong core fan base, but you also want to be able to have tons of people like your band.
