A few shows into his Rock And Roll Revival tour, Kid Rock is proud of -- and a little surprised by -- what he's wrought on the road.
"After the first show, we were all like, 'I can't believe this thing worked!'" says Rock, who's incorporating guests such as Run-DMC's Rev. Run (Joseph Simmons), J. Geils Band frontman Peter Wolf and, later, former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickie Betts with his expanded Twisted Brown Trucker Band into one long, revue-style presentation each night.
