Kid Rock is of Detroit, he lives and breathes it in all he does. The late Eddie Money was also a Detroit “guy”, who loved to perform there. This past Friday night, Kid Rock paid tribute to the fallen Classic Rocker, by dedicating the song “Shakin'” to him, and performing the song in front of the sold out masses at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Detroit, a venue that Money himself performed at 38 times in his career.
“I’m sure you heard that Eddie Money passed away today”, Rock told the crowd. “And not only was Detroit like a second home, I’m sure many of you know that Pine Knob was absolutely his house. He opened this place every Summer for decades. so we wanted to come sing one tonight and pay tribute to him. So rock on Eddie.” There is great video of Kid Rock performing the song with his band. A very touching moment for Kid Rock, who has shown his appreciation over the years with the Classic Rock heroes of his youth. Just go look at his induction speech for Cheap Trick, it’s simply awesome. Check out the video here. Special thanks to Rolling Stone.
