JOE COCKER GOT A LITTLE HELP FROM HIS FRIENDS

joecocker_woodstock_003cut

Saying goodbye to Joe Cocker isn’t easy – we didn’t realize how much we’d miss him. Back in the early 70’s he spent a lot of time in Los Angeles and performed on Sunset Strip. We’d never seen ANYTHING like him. Onstage he looked like something the cat dragged in – he was dripping in sweat, his hair stuck out in all directions, his clothes were dirty and rumpled, and he could barely keep his balance. He was always in danger of falling off the stage. Drugs and alcohol were destroying him but he still sounded magnificent. His spastic twitching only added to the horror and glory. Actually, it’s surprising he lived as long as he did, and it’s nice that he continued to perform until lung cancer got him at 70.

    Obviously you didn’t follow him later after Woodstock, which you probably didn’t attend, in later years when he dressed in slacks and button up collared shirts when he performed. The consummate entertainer. Bar none. He gave it all when he performed and took nothing with him when he left the stage.
    The Americanized Brit will be missed.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
