Joe Cocker possessed one of the greatest male voices around, with presence that was larger than life. While he became synonymous with his cover of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” and Billy Preston’s “You Are So Beautiful”, his mark on “You Can Leave Your Hat On” (originally by Randy Newman) and Traffic’s “Feelin’ Alright” (featured here) cannot be underestimated. Joe Cocker was a true genius whose vocal talents only came second to his masterful interpretation of music. Cocker was 70 years old.
