What is the opposite of polishing a turd? Would it be just lazily shitting all over something everyone likes? I ask because I’m trying to think of a way to describe the 2008 moist fart “All Summer Long,” in which Kid Rock mashed together Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London” and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama,” added a couple of trite verses about the good old days, and passed out in the cabin of his yacht. Having scraped all the resin out of rap-metal and country pandering, Rock is currently huffing on classic rock, with some help from producer Rick Rubin. His latest, Born Free, features Zac Brown, Martina McBride and Bob Seger, and sounds absolutely, exactly how you imagine it sounding. Ty Stone opens for his Midland appearance.
