Joe Cocker died today at age 70, after losing a battle with lung cancer.
The blues and rock singer died in his Colorado home, his management staff confirmed.
Cocker, a British-born musician who rose to fame in the 1960s, was known for his cover of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends” and a duet with Jennifer Warnes for the movie An Officer and a Gentleman called “Up Where We Belong,” for which he received a Grammy in 1983.
His agent Barrie Marshall said the singer was “simply unique,” the BBC reports. “It will be impossible to fill the space he leaves in our hearts.”
In all, Cocker produced 40 albums throughout his career.
