Kid Rock partied a little too hard and forgot to drink his Gatorade.
According to reports, Kid was rushed to the hospital Friday, right before he was scheduled to take the stage at a music festival in England. Organizers of the Download Festival said the rocker had been hospitalized in Nottingham, after suffering from stomach cramps and dehydration.
Word is that Kid had been out late the night before, partying at Central London's Whisky Mist nightclub. My guess is he threw one too many back.
I'm actually happy we're on the subject of Kid Rock -- not that I want him to be sick -- but I've meaning to bring his new song "All Summer Long" to your attention. It's my absolute favorite new tune, and I have declared it "The Song of Summer". It's not like Kid's usual yelling rock -- it's much more classic rock-sounding, with a country twist, and it samples "Sweet Home Alabama". If you haven't heard yet, download it -- and when you're belting it out in the next couple of months, with your car windows rolled down, know that I'm somewhere doing the same thing. Enjoy.
