Joe Cocker

Origin: United Kingdom

Main instrument: Vocal

Genres: Blues, R&B/Soul/Funk, Rock

This native of Sheffield, England, famous for his warm and gravelly voice, has been a fixture on the music scene since the early 1960s. His 1968 cover of the Beatles' song, With A Little Help From My Friends, placed him firmly on the map and allowed him to earn a spot on the Woodstock roster the following year. The 1970s were marked by a few setbacks, but Cocker returned to form in 1982 with the hit, Up Where We Belong, a duet with Jennifer Warnes. In 2007, Cocker released Hymn for My Soul, a CD including covers of Bob Dylan and John Fogerty songs.
