Kid Rock used to ride Harleys onto stage in his early days just for the effect. Now he's become a spokesman for Harley-Davidson.
Rock says that's not something the company does, so it's a lot of pressure for him not to mess it up. Rock's new album just happens to be called "Rebel Soul," and he says that's not a clever tie-in to Harley-Davidson, but just "dumb luck."
Rock says he'll be delighted not only to have the Harley-Davidson logo on his stage, but he's happy to have a sponsor that will keep the ticket prices down for his fans.
