Joe Cocker English Blues Singer Dead at 70


Joe Cocker English Blues Singer Dead at 70

Joe Cocker, the English blues singer who rasped out his version of the Beatles song With a Little Help From My Friends and made the Lennon McCartney tune a hit for a whole new generation of fans, is dead at the age of 70. While Cocker reached the number one slot with his take on the classic in 1968, it was when ABC’s The Wonder Years used the Sheffield born performer’s rendition of the song as the theme tune for their show in 1988 that this Woodstock singer was brought to the attention of younger fans.

  1. I don’t know Joe’s whole story. Lost track of him for a while but he was huge right after Woodstock and did some good stuff with his unique style. Then seemed to vanish. Resurfaced and did some nice stuff .. now gone
    See ya Joe.
