Joe Cocker had some strange moves when he sang on stage, but that was okay. It’s his gritty voice and passionate singing that will be remembered most. The pop and blues singer passed away yesterday reportedly after a battle with lung cancer. He was 70. Cocker shot to fame during the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969. During his performance at that festival, Cocker put  his own spin on the  Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” and turned it into one of his signature songs.
