Joe Cocker has died of cancer. The BBC story, twenty minutes ago, is here. Holy crap, he’s (was) less than six years older than me. (I’m going on Medicare in six weeks!)
The man was a maniac singer. My biggest laugh of the past decade was when someone put subtitles on his epic Woodstock rendition of “I get by with a little help from my friends.” See the YouTube below. (Email subscribers, if you can’t see it, coming online to see it here.)
Joe, this one’s for you, man. Hope you’re having a wild time, wherever you are now.
