Yes, I liked Leno too but Dave was my favourite. Both the good & bad, I think I see a bit of myself in him. My humour is also much kinder these days but I ''mostly' enjoyed his edge back in the day and also that he didn't mind pissing people off to make me laugh. I liked that Dave asked guests the hard questions and respected the fact that he took a stand for what he believed in. Canada's own Paul Shaffer was the perfect side kick whose laugh and mumblings of agreement made even the "not so funny jokes" laughable! Being a night hawk for many years, he was my TV pal that I will miss while everyone else is in the land of dreams.

I bought a CD of Kid Rock a few years back thinking that there would be other similar songs to the one inspired me to buy it which was the collaboration with Sheryl Crow on the remake of "the First Cut is the Deepest". The rest of the songs were not even from the same genre. I believe it was an attempt at rap. Today I hear this song on the local rock station thinking I must've made a mistake and turned the channel to the country station. As the song finished and to my surprise, the announcer says; "first kiss by Kid Rock". The song lyrics references Tom Petty and on that note, I'd like to just say to Kid; please leave Tom Petty and "sweet home Alabama" riffs out of your songs because they don't belong. I'm making this all sound like a big deal for my own amusement if you've actually gotten this far. Now, cast your votes & tweets for the Kid to embrace his country style moving forward as "Kid Country"!
