I'll never forget when I first heard this, had no idea who Joe Cocker was but was really familiar with the song, being fairly obsessed with the Abbey Road album.

I heard him start singing and I was like--- WTF?

And one of the most fun concerts I ever attended was in 1975 when Joe Cocker performed here at our grungy little Municiple Auditorium (you had to have seen it to really understand it, sadly, it was demolished 20 years ago and replaced with a "modern", dull Civic Center), not long before he came back big with "You Are So Beautiful", but still about a year before.

He was quite a mess, even told the crowd that he he'd done too much wine and cocaine, or that's what he sounded like, right before he actually, visibly, got sick off to the back of the stage.

But the voice, the performance, PRIMO trashed out loaded Cocker, over the top bellowing... and one of the most influential nights ever for me.

Cocker was out there at the time but man, what a show.

No doubt, when he had a voice, he put on a show ... he put everything into a concert! But from the get go he had a raspy voice and raspy voices don't endure a lifetime ... We all know, at least I do, our voices change with age ... Some can pull it off, I cannot ... I should have kept with "voice lessons" until my very age to date ... I did not ... Sometimes I can hit on all 8's ... sometimes, most times, I can't hit the notes ... but I sing anyway and my pups howl, LOL ... but I don't falsetto or warble when I sing ... but I do KNOW when I'm off key cuz I CAN STILL HEAR, hahahahahahaha

Hey Flower....
IT's STILL Raining....
I am not loving this... I want it to stop turn around and go back to Texas where it belongs...
I hope that you are having a fun day so far and that it will just get better as the evening falls...
I've been doing housework between goofing off...hahahaha...

Dinner is half way finished and I'm getting mighty hungry... Fish Filets, Tater Tots and Brocolli with cheese... I've got to wait for another 15 minutes till I can get my belly full... Sending you all of my best wishes and a bunch of love...

This is such a great song...Michael Bolton
How am I supposed to live without you..
I know FC will like it..lol,:)
Hi there Steve! That is a beautiful song that Mr Bolton sings with such passion ... Thank you so much for playing ... I watched a movie today with Robin Williams and John Travolta ... it was pretty funny and there was a message in the movie, of course ... The name of it: OLD DOGS, lol ... it was a Walt Disney movie, family friendly ... this, apparently, was the theme song:

If it keeps this up I'm gonna have to buy those Chi-Kids water wings.. Josie is a mud puppy... unless its a hard rain it doesn't faze her at all... She likes to play in puddles...
Trust me when I say there are some good ones in the yard right now.. I swear this rain is outta control... Honestly I'd rather have snow.. Frozen ground is much preferred to that muddy cold swamp that I have right now...
Grumble grumble... grrrrr... gosh dang...rassin' frassin' dagnab ruther muckin' MUD!!!!
Girl I am hating on this stuff BIG TIIME!!!
Deep Breath.... Heavy Sighhhhhhhhhhhh....
;o)
Dinner was yummy and I had a chocolate cupcake for dessert... that was yummy too...
Watched a little TV and kicked back for a few.. I still have dinner dishes to wash but I'll do those before I go to bed...
I sneezed myself half silly dusting... It does it every time..hahahaha
I hope that your day won't be too tiring and that no matter what you do you will have fun and enjoy yourself...
Sending you all of my best and warmest wishes...and a bunch of love...

Yes, the "growlers" get more minimalist over time... and you know my voice, I reckon I best start making adjustments for the future, myself, as time waits for no one...

Hey, did I ever show you "Waking Up Now", which several people have thought was a Jor Cocker song, high praise in my opinion:
