Scurta descriere:

Joe Cocker este un muzician englez de rock si blues, care si-a inceput cariera muzicala sub numele Vance Arnold. Joe Cocker si-a inceput cariera muzicala in oraselul Sheffield, orasul sau natal, facand parte din diverse grupuri inca de la varsta de 15 ani. In tinerete ziua lucra ca vatman de tramvai, iar seara canta rock si soul in puburile londoneze ca solist vocal al grupului `The Grease Band`.
Cariera sa muzicala a luat insa amploare abia dupa aparitia pe scena `Festivalului de la Woodstock` din August 1969. A avut succese si in Statele Unite cu melodii ca “Cry Me a River” si “Feelin’ Alright” de Dave Mason. In anul 1969, a scos pe piata albumul `With A Little Help From My Friends`, care a fost considerat de critica muzicala drept un disc de cinci stele. A primit discul de aur in SUA. Artistul a cantat alaturi de muzicieni precum Jimmy Page si Steve Winwood.
A urmat pentru arist o perioada mai putin fasta, in care a facut abuz de bautura, astfel incat Joe a cazut in uitare.
In anul 1975 revine in topul american cu piesa `You Are So Beautiful`, apoi in anul 1982 cu un duet cu Jennifer Warnes intitulat `Up Where We Belong`, tema principala a filmului `Officer and a Gentleman`.
Parasit de prieteni, Joe Cocker a gasit puterea de a reveni in forta la inceputul anilor ’90, cand cariera sa a fost practic relansata cu hituri precum `You Can Leave Your Hat On`, `Unchain My Heart`.
