First song my band ever performed in front of an audience was "Feelin' Alright". Easiest song ever to play on guitar (2 chords, same fingering, barred - A9/B9 I think; long time ago), one of the hardest to sound good on, given the repetition, and specialness Joe put into it.

RIP, Joe. Often imitated, never outdone.

I saw Joe at the Boston Garden in March of 1972. I remember because my grandmother died the week before and I came to Dorchester for the funeral.

Joe Cocker dies and Elton John gets married. The beat goes on.

I am a little too young to have been a Joe Cocker fan, but I always sort of like "Love lift us up were we belong". Rest easy, Joe Cocker.

Elton John gets married.



This might be the first time I've ever had an anti-gay marriage thought.

Because, c'mon. This dude needs to reproduce.

Please, Elton? At least donate to a bank, fer Chris'ake! I can't spend the last 50 years of my life dealing with the Beibers and Swifts of the world =,(

For fellow fans of the Wonder Years, Joe Cocker sang the theme song.

Elton was married to a woman for a while but I suspect she was just a beard.
