    I know we've ripped him some and haven't thought too kindly of the music he makes with Kid Rock but still this is pretty sad!
    READ BELOW:


    Pint-Sized Rock Rapper Joe C. Dead at 26
    November 17, 2000 5:58 pm EST

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The pint-sized rapper who performed with
    multi-platinum rock star Kid Rock has died of a chronic intestinal disorder at the
    age of 26, his label said on Friday.

    Joseph Calleja, professionally known as Joe C., died in his sleep on Thursday night
    at his parents' house in the Detroit suburb of Taylor, Michigan, according to a
    statement from Atlantic Records.

    Joe C. had suffered since childhood with Celiac disease, and as a result stood at
    only 3-foot-9-inches. His health maintenance regimen had included taking 65 pills
    a day and daily dialysis treatment. Despite this, he had been in good health, and
    his death was unexpected, a label publicist said.

    Joe C. did not let his health worries interfere with his marijuana-fueled rock 'n' roll
    lifestyle. He recorded and toured with Kid Rock, the flashy Detroit rock star
    behind such hits as "Cowboy" and "Bawitdaba," and his foul-mouthed hooligan
    persona made him a crowd favorite.

    In the "Cowboy" video, Joe C. dressed as a gunslinger and dueled with Gary
    Coleman, the diminutive actor from the 1980s sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes."

    He bragged about his sexual prowess on the title track to Kid Rock's
    9-million-selling "Devil Without a Cause" album and had a solo tune on the "South
    Park" feature soundtrack, "Kyle's Mom's a Big Fat B++ch". He also had a cameo on
    the cartoon TV series "The Simpsons."

    Joe C. once sparked a child pornography investigation after posing with two
    naked women for some snapshots. The clerk at the photo lab thought he was 10
    years old and called the police.

    In the Atlantic statement, Kid Rock, aka Bob Ritchie, said: "We have lost part of
    our family. Joey gave us and the world his love. He brought a smile to everyone
    who has ever known or seen him. In a world full of confusion, Joey made us all
    laugh. No matter what color, religion, race or beliefs we have, he made us all
    smile. He gave us the gift of joy. Joey, thank you. We will never forget you. We
    love you."

    Funeral arrangements were not yet confirmed.

    As much as I despise that shit that Kid Cock calls music, it's always a tragedy that somebody, anybody, dies that young.

    As much fun as we had with his name, that is one sad story. I'm glad he got to live the good life, albeit for a short time. RIP Joey..... the lounge wouldn't have been the same without you.

    Had he lived just one more year he would have been in the Hendrix-Joplin-Morrisson-Cobain club.
