Default Joe Cocker


. . where do you stand on him ?

- - -

My personal opinion . . .

.. an example that even as a lowlife you can find your way in the music-business. .
. . may be shocking for fans of his that I have that opinion of him , but . . . consider the following....

He was an alcoholic through and through.

Some claim that that gave him his 'characteristic' voice ( his voice was deemed as being made 'of Sheffield-steel' ) but whatever.

Second , he only covered other songs . .

- - -

So what we have here . . an alcoholic into stealing melodies of others . .

He never wrote one note himself.

He only got famous with a 'little help from friends' . .


Hmmm . .

- - -

What remains to say is that , despite him being a lowlife alcie and only 'singing songs of others' , he was successful.

Well . . if I poured so much whiskey each day I probably also would have a voice sounding similar to "Sheffield-steel" . .

- - -

I once heard that whenever he was in concert a bottle of whiskey was standing next to his mic . .



- - -

Interesting . . how some people make their money . . . .

. . .

He probably "sits at the bar in Heaven" now.

Well . . not a too long life but certainly an interesting character.

He 'had all the fun' even though never writing songs himself and he had a booze at every concert.

Way to go . . hmmmm . . .

- - -

Well Joe , wherever you are now . . hope the whiskey is well.


. . keep pourin'.

Did you ever see the John Belushi parody of Joe Cocker from Saturday Night
Live in the 70s? Belushi sings while pouring beer all over himself. It is hilarious.
Though Belushi was not one to throw stones at others considering he was a
hard core alcoholic and drug addict who died of a cocaine overdose at age
33.

I agree with Coldy...I never understood how such a degenerate could be so popular...

Talking Joe Cocksucker

. . people commend his voice more than anything . .

Well . . I suppose he also got that voice over the course of time 'with a little help from some friends' . .
