Joe Cocker, whose career spanned 40 years, has died after a long battle with lung cancer.

Cocker, known for his rasping voice, rose to fame with his cover of the Beatles song With a Little Help from My Friends, which went to No 1 in 1968.

A longtime US resident, he lived on a ranch in Colorado with his second wife, Pam. His death, aged 70, was confirmed by his agent, Barrie Marshall, who represented the singer for more than 30 years and said Cocker was “without a doubt the greatest rock/soul voice ever to come out of Britain – and remained the same man throughout his life. Hugely talented, a true star, but a kind and humble man who loved to perform. Anyone who ever saw him live will never forget him.”

Born John Robert Cocker in 1944, he was raised in Sheffield, the youngest son of a civil servant. His first foray into music was under the stage name Vance Arnold with his band Vance Arnold and the Avengers, mainly covering Chuck Berry and Ray Charles in the local pubs of Sheffield, but the band landed their big break in 1963 when they supported the Rolling Stones at Sheffield City Hall.

Cocker signed a solo record deal a year later and over his colourful, four-decade-long career, would record more than 40 albums.

This thread will fall off the front page in short order. Meanwhile, it's simple human nature to note the passing of someone as iconic as Cocker. Of course, first you have to be human to know what that means.

How I remember Joe:

In the early seventies I went to a Joe Cocker concert and during it he was drinking a bottle of Whisky.

The bottle was on a piano and during one of the songs he took a belt then proceeded to throw up all over the piano player and some vomit flew into the audience.

During the rest of the show he barfed a few more times on the stage. At the time the movie the Exorcist was big and he was doing Linda Blair thing. It was funny and sad at the time as he slipped a few thing before the mop guy came out. Kinda over the top embarrassing but he went on with show.

My friend saw him in New York and he was barfing up a storm on stage also.

So when I think of Joe that is the image that aways comes to mind.

He was also Bob Dylan's favorite singer.
