A & M Records 1970
Chris Sambrook… Another one gone. Check out 7 Days from the British Steel album from around the mid/early 80′s.
Alan Esdaile… Not good, another piece of your past chipped away.
Lucy Pappas… Another huge loss to music as well as to his family and friends x
Mark Gilham… A legend
Caz Simpson… Oh no! How terrible!
Karen Sweatman Was Blackman… How very sad.
Jim Hobbs… RIP Joe, we have lost too many good people this year!
Jane Hartley… just heard Simon Mayo and Rick Wakeman talking about Joe, love to his family and friends.
Colin Norton… Sorry to hear this! RIP Joe.
Jim Breeds.. Joe’s agents words….
John Storer… Really sad news …. it was only a week or so ago I posted about Joe when he was on the Regal Zonophone label and, since then, his single “Marjorine” has been an almost constant earworm. His albums could be rather hit and miss affairs (especially the later stuff) but anyone who released songs as great as “With A Little Help From My Friends” (a version superior to the Beatles own, in my opinion), “The Letter” and “Delta Lady” deserves to be up there with all the greats. Incidentally, excuse my pedantry, but the album Chris Sambrook refers to above is “Sheffield Steel” … he’s right about “7 Days” being a great track, though.
Andy Qunta… RIP Joe!
Patrick Lewis… Very sad news.
Glenn Piper… RIP Joe
Chris Baker… Brilliant singer. Best blues voice ever. RIP
Alan Wood… Another Hastings pier memory. R I P
John Gilbert… So sad , god bless you Joe RIP
Pete Prescott… Sad. .Great singer. I played in a bill with him at St gallen in Switzerland in 1984. Is strange. I still play cassette tapes in my car. In the way home I had one of my various tapes on. The last one I heard as I got home was his version of Delta lady. How weird is that.
Tony May… Sad about Joe Cocker.
Andre Martin… Some gigs you remember, other just well go………………. this is one that I do recall. he was a fantastic singer and it was just one of those really good nights in the Happy Ballroom, just goes to prove just how much we were in at the beginning with so many acts that came down to Hastings at one venue or another. He was only a youngster when he joined that big Concert Theatre in the sky – 70 is no age !! RIP Joe.

Mick O’Dowd… This, as I said before, is not a good year for losing people. That supergroup in the sky has just got a new member. R.I.P. Joe.
