Concert #44 - Joe Cocker at the Universal Amphitheater (October 1988)

My second Joe Cocker concert, less than a year after the first one. Crazy? Absolutely not. Joe was, and still is, a Force of Nature, a powerful live performer, typically accompanied by top-notch musicians, always offering a good mix of old and new, including the song that put him on the map in the first place, "With A Little Help From My Friends". And then there's the air-guitar. And the facial expressions. And the contorted body. In other words, you do get your money's worth.

The show opener was a band called Jimmy Wood & The Immortals, who disappeared into the same oblivion it came from.
