Kid Rock celebrated his 41st birthday in a mellow fashion on Tuesday night (Jan. 17) -- certainly more low-key than last year's all-star 40th birthday blowout at Ford Field.
The Clarkston resident hosted family and friends in private room at the Emagine Royal Oak. Among those attending were Detroit Lions Stephen Peterman and Dominic Raiola, retired Detroit Red Wing Chris Chelios, Bob Seger's manager Punch Andrews, Twisted Brown Trucker drummer Stefanie Eulinberg and members of the Howling Diablos. Rock, who received complaints for smoking a cigar in a public place over the weekend at Andiamo's Celebrity Showroom in Warren, did light up for his birthday, but in a specially designated smoking area.
Rock recently came off the road from promoting his 2010 album "Born Free" and is working on a follow-up. He next performs on Feb. 29 at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, while his Chillin' the Most Cruise disembarks on April 26 from Miami, Fla.
