    Unhappy Singer Joe Cocker dies at 70

    He was one hell of a performer with his twisting, rocking and turning style. He sang from the gut and it showed.

    Me too Humboldt. Never before nor since have i seen anyone present songs like he did. You just couldn't take your eyes off him. The voice & delivery were unique and doubtful will be seen again.

    He did some excellent stuff drunk or sober.
