RIP Joe Cocker

I was so sad to learn that Joe Cocker died today. His raw, gritty voice was one of a kind. I’ll never forget watching the Woodstock documentary, and seeing and hearing this. He sings this classic with the pain and passion of someone who really needs a little help from his friends. More than I little, actually. It may be the one time that someone covered a Beatles song–and actually topped it.

Cheers to you, Joe, for your undeniable talent. And for reminding us that, to get by, we all need a little help from our friends.
