JOE COCKER: Not Doing Very Well
Billy Joel paid tribute to him at his recent MSG show.
During Billy Joel‘s recent show at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where he is appearing once-a-month for as long as there is demand, he did Joe Cocker‘s version of The Beatles‘ “With a Little Help From My Friends.” But before launching into it he said that Joe is “not very well right now” and said he was amazed that he is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Then, promising to vote for him, which he can do as a Rock Hall inductee, he performed the song doing his best Cocker impersonation. A spokesperson for Cocker was unavailable for comment.
