Kid Rock shows up a guy’’s 30TH birthday party (VIDEO)

The birthday boy, who has Down Syndrome, is a huge Kid Rock fan.

In August, he posted a video to YouTube showing his Kid Rock shirts, posters and other memorabilia, and inviting the Detroit rocker to his birthday party.

Dan’s friends and family then took to social media to get the word out and convince Kid Rock to show up – and it worked.
Kid Rock told him that if he’s good to his family and friends, he’ll get free tickets to every Kid Rock concert!

Aaron Lewis Apologizes For Botched National Anthem

Staind singer Aaron Lewis apologized for messing up the National Anthem before Game 5 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals.

Lewis mixed up several of the songs lyrics.

His apology read:

“All I can say is I’m sorry and ask for the Nation’s forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance.

“I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.”
