More From Joe’s Diner Game:

He was considered one of the most vocal strong performers of the last half-century;  In 1999 the British magazine Mojo 8 and in 2008 - the American Rolling Stone 9 included it in their lists of "100 greatest singers in history."
First success

In 1968 he recorded his own version of Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends" which reached the top of the national sales chart in November 11.

In the spring of 1969 the "Grease Band" went on their first tour of the United States.  The album "With a Little Help from My Friends" was released shortly after arriving in America and took 35th place in the US charts.

In August 1969 his performance was one of the nails of the festival in Woodstock.  The following year the singer assembled the group "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" ("Mad Dogs & Englishmen") and went on tour in America 12.  For 56 days along with his retinue consisting of more than forty people Coker traveled 48 cities and gave 52 concerts.

In the 1970s Cocker experienced problems with the repertoire in which the songs of other performers predominated.  In addition he was addicted to drugs and alcohol regularly appearing on stage in a state of light drunk.  Due to the abuse of alcohol his once powerful voice turned into an extremely hoarse baritone 11.  This did not prevent him in 1982 in a duet with Jennifer Warnes to conquer the American charts with the slow ballad "Up Where We Belong" followed by other songs in a similar style.  The song "Up Where We Belong" was sounded in the film "Officer and Gentleman" and received an Oscar and a Grammy Award in the nomination "Best Vocal Pop Performance by a Duet or Group" 13.  Throughout the 80's Cocker finds his own sound at the junction of blues rock and soft rock and releases a number of successful albums.

Cocker was one of the few Vudstokov's "veterans" who performed (and successfully) on Woodstock '94.  Coke's little-known song "Woman to Woman" was reworked by rap producer Dr. Dre for Tupac Shakur in the hit "California Love" which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1996 14 and was included in the list of "500 greatest songs of all time according to the magazine  Rolling Stone ».
