Another good one passes away.
Thanks for the fun Mr. Cocker.
I am shocked he is not in the Rock Hall.
Another rocker from my generation is gone RIP Joe
As am I. I thought he was.
Gosh. Yet another musical legend has passed away this year
RIP Mr Cocker - and thank you for the music and the memories.
What a great artist. Sad to see him die.
Bummer. He practically invented blue-eyed soul... Mad Dogs & Englishmen is still one my favor albums to listen to.
Joe Cocker RIP
RIP my friend...
RIP. A great soul shouter was silenced today.
one of the great unique voices in rock, rip
What a unusual voice, liked his music.
Joe Cocker dies at 70
Oh! He did great contributions to us in music. I guess we can remember him and his classic songs.
One of the best concerts I ever got to see was him at Massey Hall in Toronto. Brought down the house. Could never forget it because the darling wife was 7 months pregnant and rocked right along. She never missed a beat. Got the tickets free from a lawyer she worked for who had to cancel as she she was going home for the night. Wife and I had an awesome time. He put on a show as if there were 100,000 people there and there was only 6,000. Was a real showman.
Will be missed. R.I.P.
RIP Joe another of that Gold generation gone.
Just heard the news..RIP
Another sad loss.
Saw him performing on the Torhout Werchter Festival Belgium, just awesome.
(And so was R.E.M, Depeche Mode and U2)
Unusual hands, too. I loved watching him sing.
It was an era when people practiced emoting without relying on preprogrammed, electronic emoticons to do so.
His looks was the epitome of that old bearded grizzled got that was always hanging out behind the convenient store with that bottle of the good stuff that had maybe a shot or two left in it, in a brown paper bag, singing the blues..
You could call him the British Teddy Pendergrass.. or, according to the great Colin Mochrie, Wet Biscuit McGlee.
Seriously, he looked old, scraggly, and paunchy back in the early 80s, and I thought he was in his 50s back then, so either the drugs really got to him, because not only didn't he age well, but he was looking old and tired FAST.
I mean, An Officer and a Gentleman came out in 1981-1982, and he looked just as old then as he did with When the Night Comes in 1988.
I could have easily seen him do a cover of Harold Melvoin and the Blue Notes' If You Don't Know Me By Now, and that was signature Teddy there, or if she lived long enough, a duet of the song with Janis Joplin. They just had those types that screamed emotion-filled blues, like McGlee.
I know it's sad of his passing, but sometimes you have to celebrate life with homour. With that, here's what I mean by Wet Biscuit McGlee. I definitely see and hear a Joe Cocker when I hear this. Enjoy.
