Not many people knew who he was.  While scheduled to open the 3rd day of Woodstock, Jefferson Airplane was on the stage earlier that morning as they kept getting pushed later and later.  The Grease Band started with a couple of songs on their own before Joe took the stage for "Dear Landlord" in his soulful voice.  It was an intense 11 song performance that ended "With A Little Help From My Friends."  After that day, Joe Cocker was unknown no more.

This painting would great in a space that is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, beige. or natural wood.
