Joe Cocker at Woodstock 1969

he was as spastic
as he was fantastic,
and his rendition of
"With a Little Help from My Friends,"
went about as magically
as John's murder went tragically,
only eleven years later;
makes me wish,
that all of us
had been surrounding him
that night:
I would have gladly taken that
and I am guessing
that Joe would have as well.
