Once upon a time, a Kid Rock show in Detroit was something all my people wanted to go to. It was the cool thing to do, the cool place to be, a good time for all. Now my mom wants to go, my aunt calls for tickets, and my teachers from High School frequent the shows. Once upon a time, he was a devil without a cause, now he is all religous during his shows, making me feel as if he is a zealot without a cause. The lyrics and content used to be on the edge, its what made him who he is, now its pathetic and same ole same ole. Why do I hold on? Less and less of the music that makes the shows fun are being played, less and less of what made him who he is, is being made. We used to go to shows expecting to mash it up with a female afterwards, now we turn our eyes at the sight of tits being exposed, because of the cellulite and droopyness.
What happened? Where did he go wrong? Why?
All the years of saying fuck the critics, yet the man searches for critical acclaim! The EGO that made this man do it his way, is the same EGO searching for that which he pretends to despise. The Same EGO that makes him sing drift away at shows, is the same ego that makes him take more of the Hip Hop heavy songs out of the show.
Why Do I even stand by, waiting for a sign of greatness?
I dont know...
