This is the way I will remember Joe Cocker, not the drunken alcoholic throwing up on stage I saw a couple years later:

Joe Cocker, the singer and songwriter whose hits included “You Are So Beautiful” and "Up Where We Belong," has died of lung cancer, his agent, Barrie Marshall, confirmed to FOX411.

Cocker was 70 years old.

“Joe Cocker is a legendary artist of rock and blues history and yet he was one of the most humble men I've ever met," said Edgar Berger, who signed Joe Cocker to Sony Music Entertainment. "His iconic voice will forever be etched in our memories and our thoughts go out to Joe’s wife Pam and his family at this difficult time. Joe will live on in the hearts of millions of fans around the world.”

One of the most prolific artists of his era, Cocker released 40 albums over his 50 year career. The British-born superstar had his first No. 1 U.K. hit in 1968 with The Beatles' tune "With a Little Help from My Friends." He then took his tune to Woodstock in 1969, and it later became the theme song for the beloved family sitcom "The Wonder Years."

Former Beatle Ringo Starr quickly took to social media to react to the news of Cocker's death.

The Grammy award winner was known for a powerhouse raspy voice as well as his mesmerizing, convulsive on-stage delivery. Cocker's hits also included top songs like "Everybody Hurts" and “Ain't No Sunshine.”

Cocker received an OBE (Order of The British Empire) in 2011 for his contribution to music.

There will be a private memorial for the rock legend.

Cocker is survived by his wife, Pam, his brother Victor Cocker, his step-daughter Zoey Schroeder and his two grandchildren.
Not dead, just sleeping.
