Kid Rock Speaks, In The Only Way He Knows How

Jul 22nd, 2008 // 9 Comments

Kidrock.jpgiTunes holdout Kid Rock tells Bob Lefsetz how his iTunes avoidance is working for him: “Why sell a million downloads (at a dickweed penny rate) that u say equals a 100,000 records when I’m selling well over a hundrend thousand records every 2 weeks? And I’m helping my heros sell records too???? Sounds like I’m winning, if this were the olympics I would definatley be receiving the gold medal, but that’s a lot like itunes, a lot of glory, no money!!!! i only wanna sell my album. i made a great album. itunes said ‘no’, i dont like being told ‘no’. thier just as guilty. ps, i have a ton of apple stock, pretty ironic eh? lol” All the way to the bank, even. [Lefsetz Letter]

    @Big Gray.:

    7/16: No. 5, sold 61,000
    7/9: No. 7, sold 45,000
    7/2: No. 12, sold 36,000
    6/25: No. 16, sold 29,000

    It’s been gaining in sales every week for the past three months or so.

    No, it’s a coincidence.

    But, let it be known that irony/pugs ain’t just for hipsters anymore!

    Funny. My wife was watching Ellen the other day and he was on. I have to admit, the guy didn’t seem like a total moron. I was even telling my wife about his back and forth with Lefsetz and how it was about time for another salvo. And, here it is.

    I can’t trade my wife’s Kid Rock cd on Lala. I guess he don’t cotton to that site neither.
