SECOND COMING, IN A WORD?

Speaking of Kid Rock, he had this to say about his new album, Rock 'n' Roll Jesus, which hits on October 9th: "If you just had to play one American rock 'n' roll album for somebody, this would be it." I'm sure I'll be junking my entire Grand Funk collection on October 10th, then. And speaking of oral sex -- oh, we weren't, were we? -- the Kid also pointed out to Entertainment Weekly that a ballad tribute to Fats Domino on the album, featuring the line "going down to New Orleans" could double as a metaphor for giving head. (Thanks for that, Bob!) On topic then: Kid Rock makes a memorable appearance in Pamela Des Barres new book about groupies, which I hope to write about in the paper when I have the space to do so. The new album also features "a mashup" of Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama." The album is dedicated to Bob's benefactor, late Atlantic founder Ahmet Ertegun.
