Sad news today in the music world.
Joe Cocker died at the age of 70 after a long battle with cancer. The late British rocker, who is perhaps best known for his cover of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From Friends,” which he performed live at Woodstock in 1969 and was later used as the opening theme for TV’s The Wonder Years died in his home in his Colorado home.
Cocker’s agent Barrie Marshall described him as simply unique” and “it will be impossible to fill the space he leaves in our hearts.”
He rose the fame in the 1960s, known for his gritty voice and often covering popular songs such as “You’re So Beautiful” and “Have a Little Faith in Me.”He is survived by his wife Pam, his brother Victor, step-daughter Zoey Schroeder and two grandchildren, Eva & Simon Schroeder.
In 2008, Cocker was ranked No. 97 on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers list
Rest In Peace Mr. Cocker!
