    NHL Draws Backlash for Kid Rock ASG Nod; Roenick Calls Him “the greatest musician..."

    The NHL created a whole lot of backlash Tuesday with its announcement of Kid Rock as the featured 2nd intermission performer at the upcoming All-Star Game on Feb. 18.

    Kid Rock, or Robert James Ritchie, has earned five Grammy nominations and sold over 25 million albums in the U.S., and he does have a new album to promote (Sweet Southern Sugar, released in November). But Ritchie has also garnered a lot of political attention with his endorsement of Donald Trump, his right-wing speeches at concerts, and even his brief flirtation with running for a U.S. Senate seat.
    Roenick then talked about his friendship with Ritchie, saying “When I talk to people about you, I say, ‘Kid Rock is the most talented musician, I think ever, on the planet, because you can put any instrument in your hand or on your mouth and you can play anything and rock a house and sing any kind of genre.” Ritchie replied with a self-deprecating “Jack of all trades, master of none.”

    Big deal. Better than booking goo goo dolls and nickel back for everything.

    I wonder which previous all star game intermission performer was Hemal Jhaveri's favorite.


    I couldnt name a single one. I remember the guy putting the cup down the wrong way, but i thought that was for some other shit.

    I want Pink Floyd or Led Zepplin or the Dead or Devo or maybe Musac. Didn’t KR already do this once?

    I've never been a fan of KR music, but for JR to say ‘Kid Rock is the most talented musician, I think ever, on the planet," it is quite obvious he doesn't know shit about music.

    This is PROOF POSITIVE that the NHL is trying to market to a "non hockey" audience

    lol, very true

    But I think he's actually pretty well respected amongst music people. He's been successful, to some degree, in 3 different genres. That's not very common.

    Agreed, I'm not a Kid Rock fan but you have to (or try, perhaps) respect what he has done in his career even if his music which has changed over the years isn't to your liking. I could care less if he is a Trump fan. People get bent over anything and everything these days.

    I'm a musician, albeit not successful, and I can 100% without a doubt say Kid Rock is awful. I don't give a shit how many instruments his mouth and hands can play.

    never a huge fan, but I did love the ending of The Shield series premiere with Bawitdaba blasting. (tried to post, removed from youtube) One of my favorite scenes of all time.

    He definetely has a few good songs.

    Then again, this is coming from a guy that thinks Limp Bizkit has a ton of good songs.
