HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 1, 2014) – Today is a sad day in the music industry – Front-man and founding member WAYNE STATIC of STATIC-X passed away quietly in his sleep at his home last night.

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!
