Joe Cocker’s career began in the 1960s. Cocker left a lasting impression on many, and his career included a memorable Woodstock performance, a Grammy, and an Academy Award. The singer was also known for his cover of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends”.
Cocker has now passed away at the age of 70. He had been battling lung cancer, but his agent did not confirm that this illness was the cause of death.
Cocker’s friend Paul McCartney said he was “a lovely guy who brought so much to the world and we’ll all miss him“.
