Happy Birthday today (Jan. 17) to Kid Rock. He's 47. Other rockers celebrating include former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor (69) and guitarist Fernando Von Arb of Krokus (65).

Kid Rock hit it big back in 1998 with the album Devil Without a Cause which went on to sell over 13 million albums worldwide. He gained success with songs like “Bawitdaba” and “Cowboy”, and “American Bad Ass”. His music has crossed over from rap rock, to rock and even into country with his collaboration with Sheryl Crowe and the song “Picture” in 2002. 2007’s Rock n Roll Jesus featured the hit “All Summer Long”. 2010’s Born Free was a big record and it was followed up by Rebel Soul in 2012 and First Kiss in 2015. His latest album Sweet Southern Sugar was released in 2017. Cheers to Kid Rock on his birthday today!

Having seen Kid Rock perform several times in recent years, he puts on a hell of a show with a smokin backup band of amazing musicians. I always admire Kid Rock for trying to keep his concert ticket prices low so that the average fan can afford to see him perform. He's been known to offer tickets as low as $20. I saw em in concert a few years ago at Bethel Woods in Bethel, NY (site of the original Woodstock Festival) and thought I had met him. A guy that was walking around the venue prior to showtime looked just like em. Check out the photo below and you be the judge.
