KID ROCK Talks War With IRAQ, Peace With TOMMY LEE

February 24, 2003

The following item was published in today's edition of the New York Daily News:

Kid Rock won't be joining the music industry's anti-war movement.

"Why is everybody trying to stop the war? George Bush ain't been saying, 'You all, make s-y records.' Politicians and music don't mix. It's like whisky and wine. [Musicians] ought to stay out of it."

But it doesn't take much nudging to hear the Kid's policy analysis. "We got to kill that mother-[bleeper] Saddam," he says. "Slit his throat. Kill him and the guy in North Korea."

Are some women and children going to die? "Yeah. But is doing the right thing. You got money, you sit around talking about peace. People who don't have money need some help."

Meanwhile, the Kid is trying to make peace with Tommy Lee, ex-husband of his fiancée, Pam Anderson.

"He's done a lot of bad things to a lot of innocent people," the Kid contends. "I'm a God-fearing man. I'm all about forgiveness. At the same time, I have a tough time getting there. I wish the best for him and his kids. It don't matter whether we hate each other or like each other."

Somehow we don't think it's "like."
