'The Daily Tribune' has posted a great article on Kid Rock's collaboration with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and how it all came about. Here are highlights from it:
“I thought it would be something different, to play with an orchestra,” explains Rock (real name Bob Ritchie), 41. “I want to do stuff that does fit and I want to do stuff that absolutely doesn’t fit and ... do stuff differently. It’s not going to be how people have seen me before at all, in any regard. It’s going to be a complete 180. I’m just gonna try to make it something that people have never seen and probably never will see again.
“All I can guarantee is it’ll be interesting.”
And, he adds, it will be for a good cause. Even though he’s never attended a DSO concert, Rock says the orchestra — which is still feeling the after-effects of the 6-month 2010-11 musicians’ strike as well as a challenging economy — “is important to me, of course. As a musician, a cultural institution like that in Detroit is important, and I thought I could do something to help.”
