Kid Rock Says That Limp Bizkit Showed Him How NOT to Treat Roadies

Rolling Stone have released more material from their interview with Kid Rock that didn’t make the original article published last month. Among the new topics Kid Rock discussed was how Limp Bizkit showed him not to treat roadies. Rock was the opening act for the rap-rock crew in the late-Nineties.

I always told my band, ‘You see how Limp Bizkit treats their roadies and shit? We don’t do that.’ I was like, ‘These people are helping us. They’re not trying to harm us. We’re all working together.’ Then we saw Metallica, and they treat their people great. We want to be like them. We want to treat everybody good. Don’t spit on people. Don’t throw microphones at them. Don’t get pissed off. We want to go a long way, and that’s not how you treat people. I had been in the trenches for a lot of years. I was like, ‘Let’s not fuck this up by being brats. I’ll be a brat on the stage. When we get the fuck off, we fucking treat them like they’re part of our fucking family. And luckily, I was right. ‘Cause that fucking helped. You see who’s still standing.

Kid Rock went on to say that it’s not just roadies he treats nice.

[Girls] were always throwing themselves [at us].  It’s just when we first put the record out, it was bigger girls in southern Ohio, northern Virginia. Sold 10 million records and I was banging supermodels, which I didn’t have a problem with.

[But] I always treated people nice. Looking back at those times, I think I got more pussy than fucking anybody because I always treated people nice. That’s probably why I got so much fucking pussy. It doesn’t hurt to write fucking ‘Cowboy,’ I get it. ‘Picture,’ forget about it…. We had our morals in check. We didn’t fuck anybody’s wife, anybody’s girlfriend. We don’t need those headaches.

    I want to work for Kid Rock’s road crew in my next life, he is the real deal! Or work on his getaway in L.A. and meet his buds, Hank Jr., Jamey Johnson, Zac Brown, what a life that would be!

    It makes me happy that he feels this way. It’s all about the fans. We are the ones who help make these guys rich.
