Joe Cocker’s Death: Reactions on Twitter from Celebrities

December 22, 2014

Joe Cocker’s death at age 70 has brought forth an outpouring of tributes, remembrances and condolences on Twitter as many share their reactions to the news of the passing of the legendary singer known for such classics as his cover of The Beatles’ ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’ and ‘You Are so Beautiful.’ See a roundup of what is being said.

The voice was more than distinctive; it was unmistakable and inimitable. And thus when we say the voice of the British music legend Joe Cocker is silenced now, there’s a palpable veracity to those words. This is more than metaphor. He rose to fame in the 1960s and is particularly known for singing his famous cover of The Beatles classic, ‘With a Little Help from My Friends.’ He was among the legendary lineup at Woodstock and he sang the song thus securing a place in musical history for that alone.

He had a long and stellar career and he was one of a kind. Many generations have been touched and moved by his music and his signature voice. It’s no surprise then that many have taken to Twitter. From fellow musicians and singers to Hollywood stars and public figures, many have expressed their sorrow at his passing.

Here’s a roundup below of what’s being said of Joe Cocker, followed by video of his classic, ‘With a Little Help from My Friends.’
