Investigative reporter and Detroit native Steve Miller takes us from the glory days of Grande Ballroom to the time when Kid Rock rapped -- and beyond. Wayne Kramer, Jack White, Violent J, and others appear.
This tribute collection of 19 covers of one of early rock's most influential pioneers features legends (Paul McCartney, Lou Reed), indie A-listers (Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket, She & Him), and -- would you believe? -- Kid Rock.
You can be as snarky as you want about some of the things you see -- I mean, I hadn't seen a bustier at a rock show since Madonna's heyday -- but you have to envy a crowd's willingness to fully give themselves over to a show.
