Joe Cocker has died after a long battle with lung cancer, reports ITV News. He was 70 years old.
Cocker was known for his bluesy, gravely voice and skyrocketed to prominence with his cover of the Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends,” which he performed at Woodstock in 1969.
In 1975, his song “You Are So Beautiful”, reached No 5. in the charts in the US. He also won a GRAMMY award in 1983 for his US No. 1 duet with Jennifer Warnes, “Up Where We Belong.”
