RIP Joe Cocker

British singer/songwriter Joe Cocker has died following a battle with lung cancer. He was 70. The gravelly voiced singer is best known in America for his hit songs "You Are So Beautiful" and "Up Where We Belong" (from the movie 'An Officer and a Gentleman)'.

Cocker's agent Barrie Marshall announced his death today. In a press statement Marshall said Cocker was "simply unique" and "it will be impossible to fill the space he leaves in our hearts."

Edit: Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Roger Troutman sampled Cocker's Song "Woman to Woman" for their hit rap song "California Love".

      @everybody i went a saw apparently nicki minaj went on a rant about her ex trying to sell a sex tape of them. She started naming all the stuff she bought and did for him. called him a fame whore. Problem was he didn't do it. he replied like what are you talking about??said she had his number if there was a real issue and this is why they aren't together because she has had 0 amt of respect for him the past few years. according to what i saw... he was the one who was right. shame on you nicki...you famous and you are dragging this man for filth for no reason. Now i hope he ain't lying :oops:
