Biography

A charmingly seedy but nevertheless hard-rocking character, Bob Ritchie earned his moniker while part of Michigan breakdancing crew the Furious Funkers; people would watch him and say, "Watch that white kid rock!" By 1998 legions of music fans would soon know Ritchie by his adopted nickname, Kid Rock, when he burst onto the scene with his diamond certified album "Devil Without a Cause," part of the emerging metal-hip-hop fusion scene, which made him the darling of MTV heavy rotation with the hit singles "Bawitdaba" (featuring Kid Rock's distinctive sidekick, the diminutive 3'9" rapper Joseph "Joe C" Calleja), "Cowboy" "I Am the Bullgod" and "Only God Knows Why. " His brash, outspoken and charismatic persona--which stood in contrast to his average looks and somewhat skuzzy fashion sense--made him a star with the music video set, and soon enough Hollywood came calling, casting him, predictably, as himself in popular but edgy fare like "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill," and as Kidney Rock in the less-beloved animated biological function feature "Osmosis Jones" (2001). After releasing his second album, the multi-platinum selling "The History of Rock" in 2000, Kid Rock got his first genuine acting role, appearing as Robby in David Spade's cracker comedy "Joe Dirt" (2001), which consisted of little more than a series of mullet jokes. Kid Rock's Hollywood profile was raised considerable when he began dating and subsequently became engaged to the pneumatic Pamela Anderson, the ex-Playboy pin-up of TV"s "Baywatch" and "VIP," and the rocker got his first dramatic role in 2003's "Biker Boyz" playing the grungy Dogg, one of the few Caucasians in the film's world of African American motorcycle racers.
