Default RIP Joe Cocker

Love Joe Cocker.The first time I heard his cover of "Little Help from My Friends",it just blew me away,and even the last version I heard of it ,just a year ago,still make my day,and puts a smile on my face.No matter how crappy I"m feeling.

Thanks Joe,for making me feel, I can get by with a little help from my friends,and you.RIP.

So strange...

Several years ago, I had a painfully strong urge to listen to Joni Mitchell's Court And Spark album, featuring the great John Guerin. The next morning, I learned that he had passed away the night before.

Yesterday, I had a painfully strong urge to listen to Joe Cocker's "Hitchcock Railway", and now he's gone.

Think I'll go listen to some Ted Nugent. :O

But yeah, a sad loss, 70 really isn't very old. Ain't feelin' too good myself...

Sad news, just too many lately. Life sure is short. Enjoy every rimshot even if you do rush a bit. RIP Joe.

Bwa ha ha ha - LOL

Some of the music he does isn't too bad, but his personality leaves a lot to be desired.
