  • Joe Cocker

    Dead at 70. Unique rock and roll voice, probably best known for his cover of "A Little Help From My Friends" - which became the theme song for "The Wonder Years".

    Still remember him on SNL when John Belushi.

    RIP, Joe.

        Well, he's up where he belongs now.

        Great artist.

          I would have thought Feelin' Alright was his signature tune. He also did a rad version of You are so beautiful to me.

            I originally hated his duet on Up Where We Belong, but came to appreciate it later on.

              I once saw him open for Tina Turner. It's one of the best shows I've ever been to. After the opening set, Tina's was gravy.

                Once you see Cocker perform you won't forget it. He always looked like he was having a seizure when singing. LOL

                The Letter is probably my favorite Cocker song.

                    I thought he said that wasn't true. That he was imagining playing a guitar because he always wanted to.

                        I always thought it was because he had a black former lesbian wife and a stepson with a big Afro?..... Wait, wrong thread

                            Actually, he broke up with me. Asked that I leave him alone. I'll sure miss my little mocha buddy.
