Brothers Aaron and Christopher Gillin, who suffer from Duchenne muscular dystrophy and are confined to wheelchairs, launched a Facebook campaign to meet American musician Kid Rock when he toured Australia with rock group Bon Jovi.
The campaign came to a close on Saturday night when the brothers were invited backstage to meet their idol after his Melbourne performance.
Aaron was still on cloud nine when he returned home to Warrnambool last night.
“It’s still hard to believe we actually got to meet him,” Aaron told The Standard.
“He was really nice, very easy to talk to. He’s one of the nicest musicians I’ve ever met.
“He sat and talked to us like we were old friends for about 40 minutes.”
