After more than 40 years in the music business, Joe Cocker is still one of the most successful and popular artists worldwide. Many of his 21 studio albums and 4 live albums have achieved multiplatinum status around the world. His releases have received Grammy Awards, Golden Globes, and Academy Awards. In 2007 he was handed the “Order of the British Empire (OBE).” In short: he’s a legend.
The British soul singer parlayed Ray Charles-type vocals and an eccentric stage presence into a string of late-‘60s hits, suffered in the mid-’70s, and went from tragic figure to well-respected interpreter in the ’80s and ’90s. With hits such as “Come Together,” “With A Little Help From My Friends,” and “Up Where We Belong,” among others, his gritty, powerful voice remains one of the most distinctive in rock & roll today.
“Heart and Soul”, the title of one of their hit songs, also explains the enduring appeal of Huey Lewis & The News. For over thirty years they have been making and performing music that resonates with people at their core. Whether it is their singing about the daily grind in “Workin’ For A Livin’” or lamenting a troubled relationship in “If This Is It”, this is a band that connects with people on a gut level.
In addition to commiserating over life’s rough spots, they have also given their millions of worldwide fans a soundtrack for the celebration of life’s great moments. The driving rhythm of “Heart of Rock & Roll” sings the praises of the great music being made across the US, while “Stuck With You” offers a love song with a tongue-in-cheek turn of phrase and amazing harmonies. Meanwhile “The Power of Love”, which the band wrote for the hit film “Back To The Future”, not only went to #1 on the Billboard singles chart, but also was nominated for an Academy Award.
As great as their recordings are, there is something extra special about the Huey Lewis & The News live shows.
