The music world has reacted to the death of Joe Cocker.

Cocker passed away, aged 70, yesterday (December 22). His agent Barrie Marshall confirmed that his client died following a battle with lung cancer.

Both Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney paid their own tributes to Cocker, who was perhaps best known for his 1968 cover of The Beatles’ song ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.

However, tributes have flooded in for Cocker with artists including Albert Hammond, Juliette Lewis, Cat Power, Lupe Fiasco and Giles Martin all posting messages on social media for the late singer. See below for a full list of the artists who shared their feelings for Cocker below.
