Joe Cocker

After starting out as an unsuccessful pop singer (working under the name Vance Arnold), Joe Cocker found his niche singing rock and soul in the pubs of England with his superb backing group, the Grease Band. He hit number one in the U.K. in November 1968 with his version of the Beatles' "A Little Help from My Friends." His career really took off after he sang that song at Woodstock in August 1969. A second British hit came with a version of Leon Russell's "Delta Lady" in the fall of 1969 (by then, Russell was Cocker's musical director) and both of his albums, With a Little Help from My Friends (April 1969) and Joe Cocker! (November 1969), went gold in America. In 1970, his cover of the Box Tops hit "The Letter" became his first U.S. Top Ten. Cocker's first peak of success came when Russell organized the Mad Dogs & Englishmen tour of 1970, featuring Cocker and over 40 others and resulting in a third gold album and a concert film. Subsequent efforts were less popular, and problems with alcohol (both on- and off-stage) reduced Cocker's once-powerful voice to a croaking rasp.

Cocker returned to the U.S. Top Ten in 1975, with the romantic ballad "You Are So Beautiful" and topped the charts in 1982 via a duet with Jennifer Warnes on "Up Where We Belong" (the theme from the film An Officer and a Gentleman). He still charted during the '90s, albeit with less frequency than he did in the '70s and '80s. Across from Midnight arrived in 1997, followed by No Ordinary World two years later. Respect Yourself appeared in 2002, and the covers album Heart & Soul followed in 2004. The European release Hymn for My Soul, which featured cover versions of songs by Stevie Wonder, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, and John Fogerty, was issued on Parlophone in 2007. His complete Live at Woodstock performance was released in 2009. In 2010, Hard Knocks -- his first studio album in three years -- appeared in Europe. Cocker's 23rd studio album, Fire It Up, was issued in November 2012 on Sony. It was produced by Matt Serletic, known for his work with Collective Soul, Rob Thomas, Matchbox Twenty, and numerous others. Slightly over two years later, however, on December 22, 2014, he succumbed to lung cancer. ~ Cub Koda & William Ruhlmann

Says he died of lung cancer. I didn't know lung cancer made you spastic. Maybe he got hit by a car when he was young.

Simply one of the greatest song stylists of all time. He took good songs and made them great, took great songs and made them even better. So glad I got to see him a year before he passed. RIP Joe, your music lives on forever.

Never got to see a proper performance. The only time I attended one of his shows was back in 1976 or 1977 and he was so drunk he threw up after the second song, promptly walked off the stage and, I heard, his manager stole the gate money.

I remember the 1st time I saw Joe Cocker it was in Austin Texas 1974 with Bad Company Jimmy Page Santana and ZZ TOP what a day of music

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in recent years seems to have established a sympathy vote for recently deceased musicians. The first was Donna Summer, then more recently Lou Reed. With Cocker's passing last year, perhaps he'll be next.
