In Memoriam: Joe Cocker

With the Christmas postings last week, I didn't get to post the memoriam for Joe Cocker. No one sang like Joe, his rasping voice, body movements, facial expressions all combined to make him one of a kind. He gave us some great rock and roll and blues. While the Beatles' With a Little Help From My Friends is his best known- and maybe best- individual song, his whole body of works is worth listening to. Here are two from 1970, The Letter and Delta Lady:

And, just to remember that he didn't lose it, here is With a Little Help from a live performance in 2002 when he was almost 60!
