Detroit Cobras Drummer Quits Band, Joins Up With Kid Rock

It is often said that being in a band is like a marriage. Well, if that is true, then leaving your current band must be like getting a divorce. If you are the drummer for the Detroit Cobras and you leave to play guitar with Kid Rock’s band, is that like getting married again right after your divorce to an airhead that no one respects?

This is not an analogy (no lie!). The Detroit Cobras, the band that plays cover songs of R&B & soul tunes you have never heard better than you ever could (why is it always about you?) have lost their drummer, Kenny Tudrick, to the band that back's up Mr. Yo-Da-a-Lin in the Valley, for whom he will be playing guitar. That is one versatile guy. The band also seems to have parted ways with guitarist-turned-bassist Steve Nawara, though it could not be confirmed at press time whether or not he had joined the Silver Bullet Band.

This all comes at a bad time, as the Cobras have just started a tour. Do not worry; the group found replacements for their departing members before the tour started. The DCs brought in Ko Shih from the Dirtbombs and her own Ko & the Knockouts on bass and Skeeto Valdez, a vet of many a band from the D, on drums. So rest assured, the quality level has not dipped with the addition of these two, and in the case of Shih, it's a definite improvement over the guy who played on "Molly (Sixteen Candles)."

The Cobras are out promoting Baby, their first album for Bloodshot Records. The tour has already started (sorry Cleveland), but there is still some great music left to be heard. Starting Thursday, the tour adds Memphis greats Reigning Sound. The RS are spreading the good news about a myriad of releases, including the b-sides/rarities/leftovers album Home for Orphans and the self-explanatory Live At Maxwell's, both from last year. Quite the unbeatable double bill.
