Clips From Last Night: Kid Rock: "War is never a good thing, but I do think it's necessary"

On last night's "Piers Morgan Tonight", Piers Morgan interviewed Kid Rock about music and politics, Detroit and Iraq, iTunes and "Idol" and much more. The wide-ranging interview spent time on Rock's trips overseas and if he was a Republican? While he said he leaned right in some areas, "We don't want a bunch of bible-thumpers...and we don't want a bunch of pot-smoking hippies" in office. As for the Iraq War, Kid Rock detailed a very multi-faceted opinion, before concluding: "War is never a good thing, but I do think it's necessary."

Another clip from last night – the surprising thing he and Justin Bieber share:

Besides the thing Kid Rock and Justin Bieber share, the rocker described why Bieber and others like him are good for music:

Also, check out the great open to last night's show – when Rock met Morgan (set to "Cowboy"):

    Caught a bit of this last night. It seemed like Piers had a bit of a slant, kept asking if the wars were right or wrong like he was trying to get Kid Rock to wave an anti-war sign. I give Kid a lot of credit for his opinion in a world of celebrity anti-war poser politicians who really don't know what they are talking about.

    I really don't like the personality of this show. I wish you would figure out some different programming.

    I saw the show last night and though kid Rock was incredible. He is very dedicated to his family and friends and not to mention his hometown that he really is an amazing person. i had the honor of meeting him overseas in Iraq on christmas day 2006 and he really had such an impact on the troops. He is much admired by the military and we thank him for caring enough to spend time with us.

      I really dlsiiked March too! Mostly for Marmee and Mr's March's romance (specifically the Walden Pond part). I'm not going to include the spoiler in case any of your readers are still planning to read March, but I've read Little Women many, many times, and I just cannot accept Marmee behaving like that ever!

    Hate your left sided politics Piers But I enjoy your interviewing style. Last night with kid rock was terrific. I may dislike his lack of style and my maternal side makes me cringe and want to cut his hair but he is a stand up, straight ahead good guy...sshhh don't let that out I'd hate for his sales to go down...love rock. Never been a fan really but you are a terrific human being!

    Just drop here to say you Americans are so naive to hire such a jerk as this Piers Morgan. Because your so little involved internationally you dont know his ridiculous past in Britain, the how dumb he looked in many host shows, as showed by brit presenters Ian Hislop and Paul Merton, among others, and how stupid he looked in American Idol, in sharp contrast with the great Simon Cowell. But thats America, the only place a guy like that could be worshipped.

      You're the moron for thinking Americans hired him like we voted him into office or something. CNN hired him, we watched because Kid Rock is a talented individual and a real American. Check that, US citizen. Unfortunately you're an American too, obviously not a bright one.

      2OZ, I think you're wrong.. we got 2.5 to 3 years max before this thing bubelbs.. anyone who tells you otherwise is a fool. Also, ill give you a piece of advice, once we start our next and final leg up, DO NOT listen to the majority of analysts out there... They will be the first and last to keep hyping up the metals. its their job and bread and butter... Pick a decent price point and hope the best. I hope this helps you.

    I honestly believe this was one of Piers best interviews and I have come away with so much more appreciation and respect for Kid Rock. I have probably told about 60 people today to go back and watch the clips on this show. I found Kid Rock to be a very good person and someone that puts his family, friends and hometown/country first.

    You have gained a new fan!

    Piers, you are incrediable. I watched your interview the other night with Charlie (overit) and Matt and I can honestly say, you are fantastic and you have gained a new fan. I knew you would be good, but zI think you have exceeded our expectatioins!

      Broncgirl, if you have not seen the KID live, you must put that on your list of things to do. Once you see him live you will be a fan for life. Hi stage shows are the best. I have been to lots of other concerts, but his shows are the best by far. Nickelback compares but the KID is the best. You will leave there saying that was the best damn show I have been to.

        Debbie you said it
        I have seen Kid Rock four times in concert and he is the best his Born Free concert was the best I have seen ever
        I first saw him open for Aerosmith He blew them off the stage at Lakewood in Atlanta been a fan ever since
        Until you see him live you have not experienced what a concert is about
        As for Kid Rock please keep coming to Canada on your tours keep making great albums and great rock and roll
        Kid Rock is the most talented and entertaining artist since Elvis

        that silver is in srulpus due to its recycling... the recycling plus the mining is greater than the demand out there... HMMM.. kinda beats the notion that silver is VERY scarce... something this gurus love to plant in peoples minds...This is in direct contradiction to Willie and his charts.. The radio broadcasting tries to negate this fact somewhat by stating that a lot of the silver investors out there won't sell their silver.. Thats BS.. we will sell it when the price is right.. "Its kind of hard to recommend gold at 1600 and silver at 35 when we were pounding the table to buy at 300 and 5 dollars... but the bull market isn't over yet" "ITS NOT AS GOOD AS A BARGAIN AS IT WAS BACK THEN"MY INTERPRETATION: morgan doesn't think silver will go to the moon as most think..

    I have never done this before...sending a comment anywhere...however I so enjoyed your interview with Kid Rock. I am a fan... I live in a small city in Nova Scotia, Canada and he was sked. to do a concert here last year, however it was cancelled at the last minute...media said that it was because of his record and immigration would not let him into Canada....so sad for us all. I admire him and maybe he can get those records changed for a future concert

    Piers, You are Terrible! Learn how to interview. It sounded like you ran out of questions about 3 or 4 deep, and then started asking random stuff. It was one of worst interviews I've heard and good luck building an audience doing that. By the way when your in America asking questions, respect the place your in. That was your one chance with me, and I'm not investing another hour with you.

    Not to change the topic, but there is a new news development coming out of mexico. It appears that some mexican thugs have kidnapped a profressor from Texas and has taken her to mexico. Now the question is what is this government going to do about it? Like Kid Rock says, war is never good, but sometimes it's nessesary. In the cases after cases of the mexican people and their drug cartels and lack of their gov responses to the problems they have and are still having I think it's about "DAM TIME OUR GOV DOES SOMETHING TO SUPRESS THIS CRAP WITH THAT CRAP-HOLE COUNTRY"!! I myself am getting sick of how the US Gov ignors these problems and these useless creatures BULL-SH-T. I think it's time for some seriuos "vigilantism" on the Americans citizens part! This coward gov of the US won't act on these leechs and pests then WE THE PEOPLE should... Obama makes me sick and should be dealt with the same way other countries are dealing with their governments.. Get rid of him and find a prez that understands how seriuos

    I have been wanting to ask this question of CNN for ever. Whatever happened to all the excellent TV people in the U.S. with good old American english accent? Why is CNN hiring people with British english accents? There are too many of them. It is so annoying. Please don'tt think this is going to increase your ratings. Pierce Morgan is one such annoying personality with the annoying snobbish, english accent.

      I completely agree. Fire all the British accented news people on CNN. Give the jobs to regular americans.

    I would like to see the entire interview with Kid Rock again, not just short sections. I think Kid Rock is Right-On with his opinions and outlook on life in the Best Country in the world- The USA. This comes from a Viet Nam Vet. So, how can I view the ENTIRE interview again? Please respond! Ty Heintze

    I love Piers Morgan's interview style and find his shows both interesting and enlightening. Although I wish he would not insert so much of his own political views into his questions , I learn a great deal from his interviews and will continue to watch. As a young American, not previously able to get myself hooked to any type of news show, I think Piers' style and mix of guests will attract and inform an entire generation.

    I think Kid Rock is a moran. I know it's unfair to say being i don't know him .I think he's right "War is never a good thing, but I do think it's necessary" Sometimes you need to push back! Bullies suck!
