Kid Rock: “Robin Williams Was a Great American”

Kid Rock posted the following on his official website about comedian Robin Williams who sadly committed suicide yesterday:

So sad to hear the news. No question we lost one of the greats today. But as I sit and reflect on the time I got to spend with Robin, especially entertaining our troops all over the world, it makes me proud to say what a great American he is and to call him a friend. One of the funniest nights of my life was spent with Robin and some other entertainers, stuck in a sand storm at a base in Iraq. We had to share a room that night, 8 of us with 4 bunk beds, in a tiny, tiny room. It was like the greatest summer camp ever – you can only imagine what the jokes were like that went on for hours from Robin and Lewis Black – I am pretty sure I pee’d a lil bit in my bed!! My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Rock on Robin, Rock on. – Kid Rock

    I remember you telling this story on Howard Stern’s show last summer. What a great memory for you. You are so lucky to have had that night. RIP Robin Williams. You always made me laugh.
