Joe Cocker

“Woodstock”

Here’s a great follow up to the Leon Russell painting, as these guys were my heros with their Mad Dogs and Englishmen album in the late 60’s.


Joe Cocker (May 20, 1944 – December 22, 2014) was an English singer. He was known for his gritty voice, spasmodic body movement in performance, and distinctive versions of popular songs of varying genres.
Cocker’s recording of the Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends” reached number one in the UK in 1968. He performed the song live at Woodstock in 1969 as I’ve painted him, and performed the same year at the Isle of Wight Festival, and at the Party at the Palace concert in 2002 for the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. His 1974 cover of “You Are So Beautiful” reached number five in the US. Cocker was the recipient of several awards, including a 1983 Grammy Award for his US number one “Up Where We Belong”, a duet with Jennifer Warnes.
In 1993, Cocker was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male, in 2007 was awarded a bronze Sheffield Legends plaque in his hometown and in 2008 he received an OBE at Buckingham Palace for services to music. Cocker was ranked number 97 on Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest singers list.

I’m super excited with the energy that came about during this painting, all as a result of Joe’s enthusiastic performance at Woodstock which is hard to get out of your head.
