Joe Cocker was brilliant


Only 25...gravely voice sounds like a smoker in his late 40's

And the brilliant part was . . . ? Covering a Beatles song while stewed?

People prefer Cockers version by 5 to 1 from patients that chew gum.

In other words, you can’t actually justify your hyperbolic use of the word “brilliant.”

Not many performers can 'one-up' a Beatles song...Cocker did, hence the word brilliant. If you weren't moved by that soulful performance perhaps Sha Na Na is more your speed.
