Thanks, Bluey, I missed that one: Singer Joe Cocker dies aged 70 after cancer battle

Quote
Known for his gritty voice, Cocker - a former gas fitter - began his singing career in the pubs and clubs of Sheffield in the 1960s before hitting the big time.

He was propelled to pop stardom when his version of With A Little Help From My Friends reached number one in 1968.

His duet with Jennifer Warnes, Up Where We Belong - from An Officer And A Gentleman - hit number one and went on to win both a Grammy and an Academy Award in 1983. He was made an OBE in 2011.

We remember having a dinner time drink watching the Frank White band at the Dickens Inn in Rotherham.
When Joe stepped out of the audience onto the stage and did an free hour jam session with the band. brilliant.
What a guy
