    Sad. Got to see him twice, once in 88' and again in 94'. R.I.P. Joe.

    I loved that man more than just about anybody I can think of. He was beyond fantastic. One of the most genuine, and emotional performers of all time. He was truly one of the greats; one of the real legends. Everything he ever sang was just amazing. One of the few performers who really knew how to just plain let loose.

    Wow. His passing is a great loss. He sat in with one of my first bands - we were doing a gig near where he lived (Cold Springs Tavern in the Santa Ynez mountains outside of Santa Barbara) and apparently he would often sit in with local bands there. It was an amazing experience.
    Sing with the angels, Joe.

    I saw Joe Cocker as the opening act for The Guess Who on August 30, 2001 at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto. His back up band and singers were top notch and he put on a really good show. R.I.P. Joe. You will be missed.

  16. My band played last Sat. night and someone in the audience requested Joes version of "Feelin Allright."
    We nailed it for him. RIP Joe.

    I guess 70 is the new 27; I hope he finds Belushi and slaps him upside the head.
