Not sure what to say?

I thank our Wise Lord for the Music of Joe and Janis that means so much to us. Especially, I am grateful to Joe for his perseverance on stage into his later years. And, to his family in Colorado who blessed him with contentment and purpose. A Life well lived. He finally made it across that last river....God Bless Him.

I still listen to your music everyday its just part of my life and always will be.Cant believe its been 4 years still makes me sad. All the best to the cocker family from Des Williams Australia.

Growing up with Joe Cocker's music starting with Woodstock has given me a life time of memories. His voice was, is like no other. His fans are fortunate to continue his legacy. Missing you.
RIP Joe Cocker.

Your music gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it! You were truly a great musician.

Thank you for all your great music that I grew up on.

Thinking of the cocker family as three years rolls on. As always I listen to him every day and his voice hugs my heart.

Godspeed Joe, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

My late partner and I saw Joe three times here in Perth in Western Australia. I remember hurrying to see Woodstock in Melbourne in Victoria, and Mad Dogs and Englishmen. Joes version of Cry Me A River in that film is the greatest expression of emotional power that I have ever seen. The finest blues rock voice ever. Greg and Annie.
