Kid Rock began his stellar musical journey at the young age of 19 back in the year of 1990. Mr. Rock was born under the name of Robert James “Bob” Ritchie to a car dealer from a small town of Romeo, Michigan.
Rock began showing an affection towards music at a young age, and ultimately delved into the hip hop domain to release his debut album “Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast.” The record went to sell over 100,000 units, making Kid Rock one of the two biggest rap stars in Detroit in 1990 alongside local star Esham.
Until 1997, Kid Rock was focusing purely on hip hop music, carving his signature sound and vibe on two more records, 1993’s ” The Polyfuze Method,” and “Early Mornin’ Stoned Pimp.”
The year of 1997 saw Kid Rock shifting his approach towards rap rock. His band’s lineup was changed to match the new vibe and in 1998, “Devil Without a Cause.” A massively successful release, this behemoth of an album sold 9.3 million copies in the States alone and over 11 million worldwide. The record spawned a total of six singles, including “Welcome 2 the Party (Ode 2 the Old School),” “I Am the Bullgod,” “Only God Knows Why” and more, establishing Mr. Rock as one of the genre’s most prominent figures of the decade.
2001 marked the continue of Rock’s success ” Cocky,” a five-platinum effort that marked the end of Kid’s rap rock era at its very peak, a bold business move, but a move that saw him moving in the artistic direction he wanted.
Since 2003, Kid Rock went back to his roots and began focusing on Southern rock vibe with his self-titled release. The album was met with solid success that still paled in comparison to Rock’s rap rock era.
The musician then opted to recuperate for four years and earn his way back to the top of the charts with 2007’s “Rock ‘N Roll Jesus” and the album’s hit single, a distinctive rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd classic “Sweet Home Alabama” titled “All Summer Long.”
Kid Rock was now a bonafide tour de force of Southern rock revival and kept waving his Southern flag loud and proud with three more albums so far. In 2010, he released “Born Free,” in 2012 he presented “Rebel Soul,” while his latest studio album, “First Kiss,” saw its release in February 2015 via Warner Bros. Channeling the power of rock giant Brian Adams and his “Summer of 69” in the title track, Rock paid an homage to his early life hero Tom Petty.
Throughout his career, Kid Rock sold over 25 million albums in the US alone, making him one of the most successful artists of the century. In his personal life, Rock is known for his marriage with Pamela Anderson which lasted just under five years before ending in 2006. But ultimately, it’s the hits that Kid will be remembered for, whether it’s hip hop, rap rock or good ole Southern rock. Mr. Rock’s 2015 tour will kick off in June; the boy still has it, and we highly recommend checking him out on any of the stops.
