Ed Condran of the Cleveland Free Times spoke to Kid Rock who was singing praises to those closest in his life. On his fiance Pamela, he said, “I really love Pam. I can’t imagine being without her. She’s the best.” As for his father, he revealed, “When I got my first $100,000 check, I marched over to my dad and threw it in his face. I love my dad.” Finally, of his mother, whom he took to the 2000 Grammy Awards, he said, “My mom is the best. Why wouldn’t I want her to be with me?” Freetimes.com has since removed the article.
