Joe C. dies of intestinal disorder.

26 year old Joseph Calleja, better known as Kid Rock's three-foot-nine-inch rapping sidekick Joe C. passed away Thursday, November 16th at his home in Taylor, Michigan. Since his childhood, Joe C. had suffered from Celiac disease, an intestinal disorder.

Despite being small in stature, Joe C. was an integral part of Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band, making his recording debut on the muilti-platinim Kid Rock album Devil Without a Cause in 1998. He then went on to record a track for the South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut soundtrack, starred in Kid Rock’s videos and even made appearances on Saturday Night Live and the animated Fox series The Simpsons.

In a statement from Kid Rock and Twisted Brown Trucker, Kid Rock expressed his feelings about his longtime friend and band mate. "Family and friends are everything; without them, all of the fame and fortune means nothing, 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 all of us 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."
