Joe Cocker Caricature, shown here backstage in his dressing room at the Fillmore East, NYC March 28, 1970 at age 26 when he recorded the famous live album “Mad Dogs & Englishmen”.
John Robert Cocker was an English singer. He was known for his gritty voice, spasmodic body movement; flailing his arms and playing air guitar in performance, and distinctive versions of popular songs of varying genres.
Cocker’s recording of the Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends” reached number one in the UK in 1968. He performed the song live at Woodstock in 1969.
His 1970 tour proved to be a large group of more than 20 musicians, including pianist and bandleader Leon Russell, three drummers – Jim Gordon, Jim Keltner, and Chuck Blackwell, and backing vocalists Rita Coolidge and Claudia Lennear. Denny Cordell christened the new band “Mad Dogs & Englishmen,” after the Noël Coward song of the same name. It produced a live album.
His 1974 cover of “You Are So Beautiful” reached number five in the US. Cocker was the recipient of several awards, including a 1983 Grammy Award for his US number one “Up Where We Belong”, a duet with Jennifer Warnes.
In 1976, Cocker performed “Feelin’ Alright” on Saturday Night Live. John Belushi joined him onstage doing his famous impersonation of Cocker’s stage movements.
Numerous Joe Cocker greatest hits: “With A Little Help From My Friends”, “Feelin’ Alright”, “You Are So Beautiful”, “The Letter”, “High Time We Went”, “Up Where We Belong”, “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window”, “Cry Me A River” and “Delta Lady”.
Cocker died from lung cancer on December 22, 2014 in Crawford, Colorado, at the age of 70. He had smoked 40 cigarettes a day until 1991. The two remaining living ex-Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, were among those who paid tribute to the singer.
