Cocker, Joe - Life Of A Man - The..

John Robert 'Joe' Cocker (20 May 1944 - 22 December 2014) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles.
His career really took off after he sang 'A Little Help from My Friends' at the Woodstock festival in August 1969. A second British hit came with a version of Leon Russell's 'Delta Lady' in the fall of 1969 (by then, Russell was Cocker's musical director) and both of his albums, With a Little Help from My Friends (April 1969) and Joe Cocker! (November 1969), went gold in America. In 1970, his cover of the Box Tops hit 'The Letter' became his first U.S. Top Ten. Cocker's first peak of success came when Russell organized the 'Mad Dogs & Englishmen' tour of 1970, featuring Cocker and over 40 others and resulting in a third gold album and a concert film. Subsequent efforts were less popular, and problems with alcohol (both on- and off-stage) reduced Cocker's once-powerful voice to a croaking rasp. But he returned to the U.S. Top Ten with the romantic ballad 'You Are So Beautiful' in 1975 and topped the charts in a duet with Jennifer Warnes on 'Up Where We Belong,' the theme from the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman. He still charted during the '90s, albeit with less frequency than he did in the '70s and '80s, and has also continued to work throughout the new millennium.
He is the recipient of several awards, including a 1983 Grammy Award for his #1 hit 'Up Where We Belong', a duet he performed with Jennifer Warnes. He was ranked #97 on Rolling Stone's 100 greatest singers list.
