Kid Rock Releases Photography Book Chronicling Life On The Road: “I’m Kid Rock, What’s Your Excuse?” Created by Photographer Jeremy Deputat. Detroit, Michigan - April 1st, 2013: Internationally renowned artist, Kid Rock, recently announced the release of a photography book titled “I’m Kid Rock, What’s Your Excuse?” chronicling his life on the road through exclusive, behind-the-scenes photographs taken during the summer of his 2011 “Born Free” tour. The limited-edition 176-page 12” by 12” hardcover book provides a candid glimpse into Kid Rock’s life as a performer traveling across the country fulfilling his role as both a multi-platinum recording artist and self-proclaimed “devil without a cause.” “Shoot everything, edit nothing, I’m not scared!” Rock told Deputat when he asked about photo restrictions. “While Rock happens to live a pretty normal life when he’s off the road, he really lives up to his ‘born free’ persona on tour. I thought fans might want to see what it’s like to live the ‘rock ‘n’ roll Jesus’ lifestyle.” Deputat shot over 25,000 photographs, following Rock through every aspect of tour life from sound-check to whiskey-soaked hotel parties and everything in between. Everything. Deputat’s extreme all-access photo pass is quite apparent in “I’m Kid Rock, What’s Your Excuse?” The pages are packed with plenty of female admirers, backstage debauchery, Kid Rock culture and dozens of portraits illustrating Rock’s multi-faceted fast-paced lifestyle: businessman, family man, musician & more. The book also features several fellow musician and celebrity cameos including Sean Penn, Jon Stewart, Jimmy Fallon, Gibby Haynes and Peter Wolf, to name a few. “I’m Kid Rock, What’s Your Excuse?” is Deputat’s first published book. 2,500 hand-numbered & signed copies of “I’m Kid Rock, What’s Your Excuse?” were sold out in 3 weeks and has become a sought after collectible.
