Joe Cocker - With a little help from my friends

From The Washington Post:

Grammy-winning singer Joe Cocker died  Monday at age 70, his record label confirmed. Cocker, the British ’60s rocker most famous for his cover of the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” and songs such as “You Are So Beautiful,” was battling cancer.
“It will be impossible to fill the space he leaves in our hearts,” Cocker’s agent, Barrie Marshall, told the BBC.

Though Cocker was legendary for his earlier music (“With a Little Help From My Friends,” which he famously performed at Woodstock, is best-known as “The Wonder Years” classic theme song) he had some success in his later years, too. He had a top-selling European tour along with his final album, “Fire It Up,” in 2012. He also won an Oscar in 1982 for the song “Up Where We Belong,” a duet with Jennifer Warnes on “An Officer and a Gentleman” soundtrack.
