-- Kid Rock of course performing born free it -- 2012 rally for governor Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
The rock star made waves with his outspoken support for the Republican candidate then.
And he's -- some -- now by turning the music industry's model high priced concert tickets on its head.
Here now let me live Kid -- body receive as he made it let's start with that twenty bucks a seat you've you've capped it that that's unheard of rock stars don't do that they try to Jack up the prices that bring him down.
Well -- so many of us look at these corporations like it doubles and I figured you know there are people with corporations that if we can just sit down have an honest conversation with fines and transparency that there might be some money to make thereby giving the fans the deal.
So said -- live nation.
It's not only twenty dollars and it's mostly every -- we still put.
A thousand tickets on the secondary market let whatever this whatever the scalping -- that we look at we undercut those but those help pay for the twice.
Paperless ticketing and first when he rose.
Can't buy -- seat to the first two -- will give those away.
Ford -- pick people who -- like stuck in the back -- in no there's no he's not your teacher and I and you just -- -- -- like you know what you look like he should be in the runners and people on to talk to -- dollar Beers on top of all that -- -- -- -- that you cap the price of either not a one -- us because I think people are custom especially in this country now like they say there's a deal.
And you go there and there's one kiosk with -- -- and one steal lying yet.
Everywhere Ford our Ford -- twelve months you're good anarchy everything we can do just -- -- and you know what probably make.
Very good money that's exactly right because you're good businessman at heart and you've been proven that over the -- -- on into.
So well unease in the numbers so if you don't if you can't get people to shall conceive for twenty dollars might be time to rethink let's just.
-- out everywhere already -- -- -- in the -- now let me talking about 2012 because.
I've no need for a couple years now I and you I've known that you you know you -- more of an independent means sort of both the man.
But it was surprising to -- see you come out so forcefully and go play the Rodney concerts and be an advocate for him like you did that.
Never met a more decent human being in my life that was my -- to mind boggling how great romantic -- Really was an I can't do you have to -- people when.
Was no -- I don't likes of course is well conflict only writing in the left the industry -- -- perfectly you know that there's nothing wrong with the stand up for what you believe in and have an honest conversation with people I have all the time I would doubt you know coach on hand but he sort of credit fears.
He's a good friend of mine we go at it.
Toe to toe all the time but you know what we have great conversations and we have a better understanding of some things and I think more people could just have that dialogue.
If everybody would just calm.
Or I had just everybody settle down I don't think anybody's trying to well -- if you people trying to ruin things but overall I think.
People for the most part -- pretty pretty sensibly thinking.
Yeah Elena show that -- -- to -- that this is a clip we just had to be robot initial clip -- you would Sean -- he did a Funny or Die thing.
We don't know was funnier than what anybody got a lateral passes is a public service -- I paid for that man you did.
Hit (%expletive) yeah.
-- check check check out his work product along with mr.
It's a great -- and it's a great message.
I thought it was about it was perfect timing you know and it was so Gregor -- -- a lot of credit my buddy Jamie staff and shot that.
That is call them up I thought it was some -- my issue and an iPhone.
I -- have some fun with from the Internet and my buddy Jamie put that together for pretty low budget like -- granderson -- and Sean was you know I'm actually not BC's this is his.
Comfort zone acting media have so much this year after Hillary but to come together knew that that was a perfect timing with with to the madness that was going on before that election and people just flat out -- each other over politics you feel like we're less divided now to lower them.
-- -- -- -- I'm not to share -- -- I think I think that big wave -- passed.
You know it just it's still seems like I don't I don't think -- -- this get done like this I think still congress people I don't think people have much faith in them including myself the people are just.
Open arms averaged you know.
Trying to take credit or -- credit rather than try to work together and -- -- -- What do you make of all of you know scandal -- -- we've seen in the country leader with a that -- terror attack in the IRS targeting conservative groups and you know the DOJ spying on reporters now the NSA listening to your well -- let's open -- I wasn't reading your emails I mean -- I don't think I don't think they can take it.
That's the -- list.
Heavy enough on the brink of the monotony of the day at a high.
Did he give you a lot one.
-- I think.
-- -- Think it's something I think if I turn on one TV news station they tell me one win if they -- another one.
They might say a little bit the other way and I think like a lot of people.
I don't know what to believe there.
I think the media is sometimes just as out of hand as the politicians are because you know we're taking sides rather than reporting things honestly and then when -- -- to spit conversation between family or friends or between your neighbors.
A lot of times you -- an idea behind because you don't really know the facts at an -- but there's so many facts to know by the way you know -- just simplify things whether it's from the tax code.
I'm down in the way we we speak to each other I think if we -- just simplify everything people might have a better understanding what's really going -- but things have gotten so complicated the real screw balls in this country to -- -- attorneys.
I'm writing right here I think here you know we had this conversation what we've -- that I -- -- a yeah I said what do you do for a living Saddam international -- -- -- -- mean you that's when the journalists -- that I'm a recovering attorney so it's a very different.
What do you think I mean I know you like Robin last election getting me like now is anybody out their politics -- island -- -- there are no black cat.

Then my buddies you know who Obama fans and I've played in just you know the national prayer thing -- -- -- while.
That makes a lot of sense who knows what happen in the future but you know I always -- with that -- where I guess.
It's it's but it's fascinating election you evolved because you're this big rock star used to be married to Pamela Anderson of course which was one of -- many claims to fame but you're actually -- dad with a son in college now and you've got to pay for college education.
