Bloggy Goodness: Kid Rock’s Stimulus

Say what you will about the classic-rock cribbing Kid Rock, but the one-time Phish collaborator will indirectly be responsible for creating 400 new jobs in his home state of Michigan. The Michigan Brewery announced yesterday that they had been granted a state tax credit to produce a new line of craft beer for the musician, who came up with the idea. The brewery is expecting their new Kid Rock branded beer to hit shelves by mid-springtime. The beer’s name, style and pricing are yet to be decided.


Finally, in what may be one of the odder “super-groups” of all-time former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Hanson keyboardist Taylor Hanson and Fountains Of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger have formed a band together called Tinted Windows. The group will make their live debut at Billboard’s SXSW Showcase and have already recorded their debut album, which will hit shelves on April 21.
