54 Rare Historical Photos That Took It Way Too Far

If you've ever seen John Belushi on Saturday Night Live imitate Joe Cocker - he's taking it from this performance at the 1969 music festival, Woodstock. Cocker completely nailed the Sunday-afternoon crowd with their intense performance of the Beatles: 'With a Little Help From My Friends.'So did Cocker take the brown acid before his performance?I was furious because all the band had taken acid and they didn't tell me, Cocker recalls.

Joe Cocker: The British rock-n-roller, who is best known for his cover of the Beatles song "With a Little Help From My Friends", died on Dec. 22. He was 70. Two of his other hits included "You Are So Beautiful" and "Up Where We Belong," the latter of which was in An Officer and a Gentleman and went on to win both a Grammy and an Academy Award. Cocker died at his home in Colorado after a battle with small cell lung cancer. His publicist said in a statement that the singer was "simply unique."
