I saw on TV news that Mr. Joe Cocker passed away yesterday (aged 70)..
‘Rest in Peace Joe !’
I believe he was famous (or maybe infamous) for cannabis consumption in the 1960-70s. I even heard a rumor that he & his band were paid by the concert promoters in cash & cannabis !
There are three songs that are most well known :
1) Up where we belong (duet)
2) You are so beautiful
3) With a little help from my friends (remake of a Beatles song).
I hear that his version; sung at ‘Woodstock’ launched him to worldwide fame. I wonder if he should have retitled it : ‘With a little HEMP from my friends’ (LOL).. he stated “Remember it !!”
I understand that Joe was one of Sheffield’s (England) most famous Sons ! (my Dads hometown)
