Another legend goes away R.I.P

Post  Tarkan on Mon Dec 22, 2014 11:06 pm

Singer Joe Cocker, best known for his cover
of The Beatles' With A Little Help From My
Friends, has died aged 70.
The Sheffield-born singer had a career
lasting more than 40 years, with hits
including You Are So Beautiful and Up
Where We Belong.
His agent Barrie Marshall said Cocker, who
died after battling lung cancer, was "simply
unique".
Sir Paul McCartney said he was a lovely guy
who "brought so much to the world".
Cocker's friend Rick Wakeman, keyboard
player for the rock band Yes, called his
rendition of With a Little Help From My
Friends "sensational" and said: "He had a
voice that was just unique."
Wakeman told BBC Radio 2: "The great thing
is with someone like Joe is what they leave
behind, and that will be with us for years
and years."
Known for his gritty voice, Cocker - a former
gas fitter - began his singing career in the
pubs and clubs of Sheffield in the 1960s
before hitting the big time.
He was propelled to pop stardom when his
version of With A Little Help From My Friends
reached number one in 1968.
He performed the song at the famous
Woodstock Festival in New York state a year
later.
He was also well-known for his Mad Dogs
and Englishmen Tour of 1970, which visited
48 cities across the US.
His duet with Jennifer Warnes, Up Where We
Belong - from An Officer And A Gentleman -
hit number one and went on to win both a
Grammy and an Academy Award in 1983. He
was made an OBE in 2011.
Last year, his arena tour across Europe saw
him achieve a number one album in
Germany and give what was to be his final
concert in Hammersmith, London, in June.
Cocker, who recorded 23 studio albums and
40 albums, lived in Colorado, in the US.
Mr Marshall said it was with "the heaviest
hearts we heard that our beloved Joe Cocker
passed away last night".
He continued: "He was without the doubt
the greatest rock/soul voice ever to come
out of Britain and remained the same man
throughout his life."
Mr Marshall described Cocker as a "true star"
who was also "a kind and humble man who
loved to perform.
"Anyone who ever saw him live will never
forget him," he added.
'Etched in our memories'
Sir Paul said he would be "forever grateful"
to Cocker for turning With A Little Help From
My Friends into a "soul anthem".
The former Beatle said: "I knew him through
the years as a good mate and I was so sad
to hear that he had been ill and really sad to
hear today that he had passed away.
"He was a great guy, a lovely guy who
brought so much to the world and we'll all
miss him."
Other musicians to have paid tribute to
Cocker include Beatles drummer Ringo Starr,
who tweeted: "Goodbye and God bless to
Joe Cocker."
