Kid Rock Pays Tribute To Eddie Money At ‘Pine Knob’ Concert
On the evening of Eddie Money's death, Kid Rock payed tribute at 'Pine Knob', a venue Money himself had played numerous times.
According to a story on Billboard.com,
Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker band played a version of Money's hard rocking "Shakin'," a hit song from 1982's No Control, during their concert at the Detroit-area DTE Energy Music Theatre, formerly known as Pine Knob. The group accompanied their performance with a video screen photo of Money and the caption 1949-2019. - billboard.com
Rock led into the song by mentioning Money had played Pine Knob many times over his long career and said Michigan had become like a second home.
"And not only was Detroit like a second home, I'm sure many of you know that Pine Knob was absolutely his house. He opened this place every summer for decades. So we wanted to come sing one tonight and pay tribute to him. So rock on Eddie," Rock was quoted in the story.
The story says Money played Pine Knob 38 times over his career, including a Memorial Day weekend concert over the past 28 years.
Money died Friday of esophageal cancer. He was 70.
