Joe Cocker Visits My Hometown! Wow!

J. Kordosh, Creem, November 1982

THE W'S: Joe Cocker grew up in Sheffield, which is north of England way. I grew up in Livonia, Michigan, which is like most of America only in that it's west of Detroit. Joe Cocker is my senior by some eight years and has enjoyed considerable success as a singer, particularly during the early '70s. His best-remembered LP is still Mad Dogs & Englishmen.

Total word count of piece: 1955
