Joe C o c k e r (May 20, 1944 December 22, 2014)

Singer Joe Cocker dies aged 70

Joe  C o c k e r  - With A Little Help From My Friends

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wG6Cgmgn5U


I may have not followed his career as I do other artist, but that doesn't mean I didn't like his singing. I did and still do. And it's a telling testament in how good he is that I actually think his version of The Beatles 'A Little Help From My Friends' is the rare occasion where the remake is better than the original and I LOVE the original. RIP dude.

I'll just leave this here...


I can't find a good embeddable version of the duet... but we all know about it.

God, watching that clip with Joe with Brian May and Phil Collins just gives me chills. Awesome performance. Now gonna watch John Belushi which has always been one of my all time favorite performance by John on SNL.

Here's snippets...

But the full performance can be seen here at Ultimate Classic Rock

And I remember distinctly this piece when it originally aired on SNL and SNL was a thing.  ;D

Without a second thought, my favorite by Mr. C*ocker is You Can Leave Your Hat On.

Man, I just love the horns and the big sound. No one but Joe could have made this better.

Oh, oh, oh and I've not seen this video. WTF is wrong with me. Dayum.... NSFW

A chilling reminder that Mickey Roarke used to be attractive.

That song is in my stripper movie playlsit, even though it's too iconic to actually use.  Great track.


Edit:

Via The Guardian, Joe Cocker's unlikely influence on hip-hop.

I could have sworn that I posted the video in the Stripper Thread. If not, punch me in the face. Please.  ;D Anyway, totally agree that he and he alone could make the song what it turned out to be.

Without checking, I think you did because I could not get through "NIne And A Half Weeks" and I KNOW I didn't get to that part.
