Adam Graham of The Detroit News spoke with Matt Shafer (aka Uncle Kracker) and his brother Mike. Mike was a resident DJ at Daytona’s nightclub at 14 Mile and Rochester Road, took on an unknown from Romeo named Bob Ritchie, who called himself Kid Rock in a Sunday night DJ competition. The two eventually became friends, and it wasn’t long before Matt met Ritchie. “My brother was totally in awe of Bob,” Mike says. “He hung around with Bob as much as he could. He was all in.” Detnews.com has since removed the article.
