I recall, back a few years ago just before he passed, I read an interview with Tom Dowd. Part of that interview was on new artists whom he felt were keeping an eye on. Tom mentioned Kid Rock and was quite entheustiac about him as well. He mentioned that he also had lunch with him and was very impressed with him....but felt his girlfriend at the time was a complete ditz.

Tom Down has produced or engineered Ray Charles, The MJQ, Aritha, Erci Clapton, The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, Jphn Cultrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Rod Stewart, Otis Reading.... ex.

If Tom Dowd gives Kid Rock his seal of approval, he's okay in my book.


Good luck Dickey! Have a blast!

Kid Rock is going on tour soon, in some pretty high powered company.

The Rock and Roll Revival Tour (30 US shows January 25 - March 22) will feature the talents of Dicky Betts (Allman Brothers), Peter Wolf (J. Geils Band) and Reverend Run (Run D.M.C.).

Now understand, these guys will not be opening acts. They'll be performing with Kid Rock, on the same stage at the same time.

This puts a different light on the matter, doesn't it? Maybe dickey is bored and can't get a lot of bookings in places where he would like to play.

So i'm still trying imagine dickey playing sideman in a rap song wearing bling and taking steroids to bulk up his biceps and get six pack abs.

lol, lol, lol

The tour is not coming close to me. I sure would like to hear what a show is really like. I hope some folks go and give us all reports.

Kid Rock is an enormous admirer of the ABB so it is most that he would want to jam with one of his heroes.

This is from a review in today's Detroit Free Press. Sounds like a long 3 hour show and with all the guests the pacing needs work.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone here saw the show, from what I read here, Dickey only did one song
...........................................................
The Rock and Roll Revival tour marks the latest of Rock’s periodic efforts to enhance his live show: an old-school revue tour featuring guest artists supplying a diverse array of music. In this case, the enlistees were Run, funk-rock vocalist Peter Wolf and Southern rock icon Dickey Betts, all backed in various formations by Rock’s newly customized Twisted Brown Trucker band.

The guests did their thing in short stretches, spliced amid Rock’s own set. Wolf, still wiry and gyroscopic at 61, hopped out for an early performance of his J. Geils Band chestnut “Love Stinks” before returning for a fun 10-minute set that included the wiry “Detroit Breakdown” and “Musta Got Lost,” complete with the charismatic Wolf’s famous stage patter.

A more modest Betts was joined by Rock for a run through the Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man,” a shaky number — lighting miscues and all — saved only by the familiar white-lightning tone of Betts’ guitar lead.

After a brief intermission, Rev. Run paired up with Rock to swap rhymes on a handful of old Run-DMC classics: “It’s Tricky,” “You Be Illin’,” “King of Rock” and the crowd-raising “Walk This Way.”

Kid Rock’s long history of area performances, a schedule that has often featured three or four hometown shows annually, has left Detroiters well acquainted with his live repertoire. But this was a markedly different sort of show for the locals — the kind of night when traditional show closer “Cowboy” could get moved substantially forward in the set list.

Rock kept his set’s first half relatively mellow and low-key, as if to reserve some of the audience energy for his guest’s spots. He drew frequently from his latest record, “Rock and Roll Jesus,” allowing the crowd to familiarize itself with the newest members of his road band — most notably Detroit sax man Dave McMurray, who graced “Roll On” with a jazzy soul solo, and Pontiac guitarist Marlon Young, whose fluid, fiery leads were a premium addition to the band.

Rock cranked things up as the show zoomed in to a close, pulling from his standard bag of stage fare before bringing out his guests for an odd if well-intentioned group cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.”

It wasn’t a perfect night: The staggering of guest sets kept the show from building a proper momentum, and Rock’s own indulgence in his Rock and Roll Revival imagery — complete with exhortations to fans to exchange greetings of fellowship — often felt clumsy and forced.

But it’s clearly a concept with promise, and Rock’s live show was certainly due for an overhaul. With the right tweaks, the right attention to pacing, he just might find himself looking at a concert approach that will pay dividends well into the future.

I'm just gonna say it. It ain't fair to Great Southern. What are they supposed to do while Dickey's on the road with somebody else? The next thing I will say is that if they get gigs booked (and somebody ought to see to it that THAT happens), people should get out and support them. Would be interesting to see what Andy and Duane would do with nobody there mindin' the store. (probably still blow the roof off the place).

I believe Dicky is just having some fun and not taking himself so serious. God knows he deserves it.

Great Southern isn't their only gig. The guys have their own bands and side projects. Besides, Dickey usually doesn't fire up a tour until May anyway. Just another year for these guys.
