A Candle For Joe Cocker (May 20, 1944 - Dec. 22, 2014)

When I first heard that Joe Cocker had passed, I said to my husband, "It was a miracle he got that old ..." Joe's life had been as raw as his singing: the demons drug and alcohol took their toll, times and musical tastes chanveg -- yet he survived and still gave us more of his passionate singing.

Here now is the candle for Joe. Gosh, it really hurts to let him go -- and with him a part of the history he (and we all) were part of.

Rest in peace, Joe! There will be many hearts heavy with wonderful memories of your music this Christmas.
