Joe Cocker

I was so sad to hear of Joe Cocker’s death last week.

I met Joe Cocker the rocker, in California in 1979, what a great bloke and the best rock singer ever. I have had the delight of singing with him on many occasions.

My lasting memory of him was in the 80’s when we, that is Chris Thompson, Joe Cocker, Chaka Khan, Micky McDonald from the Doobie Brothers, Brian May, myself and many other fantastic artists did a song called Yes We Can under the name of United Artists for Nature.

Joe will be sorely missed by the music world and all who knew him.
