Inspirational quotes by Joe Cocker:
I love songs that have a rocking and grooving feeling.
It’s interesting, as I said on the last tour in America, the audience actually came out, they had to have been the kind of fans who listened to my music via their parents, you know what I mean?
The world is a tougher place to live in than it was back then, as we come into the computer age.
Well, we have this place in Telluride, Colorado. It’s somewhere I can just get away and relax and think.
I have sung to large crowds since then, and there is a feeling that once you get over 100,000 people, you kind of lose the control element, you don’t know if you are really getting through or not.
I’ve been touring now since about ’68.
Well, over the years, I’ve developed a stable of songs of which I’m known for and never get tired of singing.
