KID ROCK: The Music Man … My Secret Identity


The Music Man

Music that  stems from his heart will give comfort. Music that stems from his soul will give connection.    But there is no other feeling when it comes from both. When I listen to the lyrics of the songs about his life, I get a picture almost like television in my mind. In the more controversy days of his lyrics,  its a sense of my  being in the same place that gives me that connection and  realization.
It is having the same ability of being able to fly after standing up for what you believe in.
Without question.
His life sort of merged into mine as if it had always been ~ …then  I remembered why
Robert Ritchie  (Kid Rock)  turned out to be my Secret Identity.
Superman was born on the planet Krypton. He was surrounded by the same element
that weakens him on the earth.
In the Heavens the same is true for God.   All people are Gods strength.  Just as Superman, when God is on the earth , people to God are like  kryptonite.
They become the weakening power from  the same power that gives strength. It is the alter (same as in church) that gives the alternating current of strength.
Kid Rock is my Clark Kent. He gives me strength when I get weak. He keeps me strong when am I strong.
This isn’t just as people know him but it is as he is Robert Ritchie.
I am my own living proof that music did save the immortal soul.
Clark Kent and Superman are one man. But identified as two.  Kid Rock is my secret idenity to me.
It has nothing to do with is public image as  a Rock Star. Although it does give the universal connection of star power.
It has everything to do with who he is  as Robert James  Ritchie from the inside. I have not yet
seen him perform in person…but I know this in my heart and the core of the same soul.
He has saved my life in the past  (and he is aware of this), but I have never been able to tell
him thank you in person.   He really is My SECRET IDENTITY
Now as he turns 40,  he has more of a sense of who he is. He is no longer trying to find a place in the world while making sure nothing stands in his way. He is now, standing firm on who he is in ways as in to his beliefs, family, America, and God. If you were to put those in a place of importance, it would all be number one!
He has become more worldly, instead of one that wants to take on the world. He stands with a very proud foundation of who he is and what he can do for this world not just in music but in many other things. If almost as if the world is coming to him now.
Kid Rock is a man with a lot of heart and Bob Ritchie is the same man with a lot of love and trust and beliefs that are from those roots of reality. Most people couldn’t even fake to recognize.

I know that we share a secret that is becoming known…maybe before  the world becomes all crazed and lost…  It will have that chance.

It would do the world so much good- that you could witness the difference.

Kid Rock: “I’m not a greedy man, there really is nothing I couldn’t live without”

■ enlarge

The home I grew up in… was a beautiful, very middle-class American colonial house. It was set over six acres of land and there was an apple orchard out the back. My dad got me selling the apples to our neighbours at an early age.

When I was a child I wanted to be… a performer, ever since I can remember. My spirit has always been in rock’n’roll; and, yes, it is everything I thought it would be.

The moment that changed me for ever… I was riding a tractor when I was young – about five years old – and my brother fell off. His injuries resulted in him losing one of his legs. I think everyone has a definitive moment at some point, when you decide you must live every moment to its fullest.

My greatest inspiration… My son, in every way. He inspires me to get up in the morning, and in some regards he has made me more careful. Children can balance you out sometimes, which is something I was seriously in need of.

My real-life villain… Oprah Winfrey, she rubs me up the wrong way. I just don’t believe her. Maybe it’s because I’m not one of the 150 million brainwashed women who heed her every word.

My style icon… John Lee Hooker.

If I could change one thing about myself… I’d change the bimbo attractor chip that God must have placed in me at birth.

At night I dream of… In my last dream, my friend [the American hip-hop legend] DMC taught me how to clean my tennis shoes. He explained that he could teach me things about life that I need to know.

What I see when I look in the mirror… My father. And my mother (without the boobs).

My favourite item of clothing… My hat collection would definitely be up there, but to be practical, I might take my belt buckle over the hat.

I wish I’d never worn… a whole lot of things. I know exactly why I did wear them – I was drunk and not thinking properly.

It’s not fashionable but I like… free hotel strippers (I mean slippers).

You wouldn’t know it but I’m very good at… giving good advice.

You may not know it but I’m no good at… taking good advice.

All my money goes on… slow cars and fast women, which might be why I still have all my money in the bank.

If I have time to myself… I’m not very good at being alone. Maybe I’ll sit around listening to music, with a cigar – but really I just enjoy being with people.

I drive/ride… pretty much everything with an engine. I collect cars and bikes. One of my most special rides is a black 1930s Cadillac V16, and then I’ve got a few West Coast choppers. These are up there with my favourites.

My house is… a colonial-style, southern American farmhouse, set over 50 acres. It has big wrap around porches at the front and a barnyard out back for horses. I wanted to keep it very classic.

My most valuable possession is… I’m not a greedy man, there really is nothing I couldn’t live without. But if there was a fire, and I saved my child and my pets, I’d be happy.

My favourite building… The Motown Museum in Detroit.

Movie heaven… would probably be a comedy, watched in a theatre with some character, not one in a strip mall. But the most important thing is who you’re with; whatever you’re doing in life, it’s not where you’re at, but the company you keep.

A book that changed me… I don’t read books. I like to read newspapers and magazines, but I’ve never learnt to enjoy books or novels.

My favourite work of art… I like the early graffiti writers, the work of the New York cats from the Seventies and Eighties, which I remember from being a kid.

The last album I bought/downloaded… I downloaded Southern Rock’s Whiskey Falls to my iPod, and I’m also a DJ, so I collect vinyl. There’s this big jazz shop in Chicago where I bought a John Lee Hooker record just the other day.

The person who really makes me laugh… Chris Rock is a good friend of mine, and he is hysterical. Then there’s [the comedian] Dave Chappelle and [the actor and comedian] David Spade; he’s king smart ass, he has a retort for everything.

The shop I can’t walk past… Gruhn Guitars in Nashville, Tennessee.

The best invention ever… Electricity, or condoms. It’s a toss up.

In 10 years’ time, I hope to be… alive. I haven’t even decided what I’m going to have for tonight’s dinner yet.

My greatest regret… She knows who she is.

My life in seven words… Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Happy, Bashful, Grumpy.

A life in brief

A singer, songwriter and musician, Kid Rock was born Robert James Richie in Detroit, Michigan, on 17 January 1971. He plays several instruments, including the banjo, harmonica and drums, and has sold more than 23 million albums, as well as having an occasional acting career, appearing in CSI: NY and The Simpsons. He hit the headlines in 2001 when it emerged he had been dating Pamela Anderson, whom he later married in 2006, and divorced five months later. The acrimonious split supposedly charged the lyrics in his latest album, the number one hit Rock N Roll Jesus. The first single, “All Summer Long”, is out now on Atlantic Records. He lives with his 15-year-old son in Charleston, Michigan

TREASON Lyrics ~ Lindsey Buckingham

I called you up they said you weren’t there
Years ago I was low why should I care
I wandered down where the sky meets the sand
Closed my eyes told you lies out of my hand

Deep down there is freedom deep down there will be a reason
At the end of the season we will rise from this treason

I walked around under moonlit skies
All alone going home hoping to fly
Face down in the ocean always gasping for air
Saw your face full of grace trying not to care

Deep down there is freedom deep down there will be a reason
At the end of the season we will rise from this treason

I walk empty halls wondering what is true
Behind garden walls I search for you
Deep down in the ocean deep down in the sea
Saw your face full of grace searching for me

Deep down there is freedom deep down there will be a reason
At the end of the season we will rise from this treason

Deep down there is freedom deep down there will be a reason
At the end of the season we will rise from this treason
We will rise from this treason we will rise from this treason
We will rise from this treason
