Joe Cocker Dead At 70

Joe Cocker has died at the age of 70 after a battle against lung cancer. The vocalist is best known for his 1969 version of the Beatles' track With A Little Help From My Friends, featuring Jimmy Page on guitar, from his debut album of the same name.

He notched up another 21 records, the last of which was 2012's Fire It Up. In 1999 he was named as one of the top 100 singers of all time by Mojo, then in 2008 was given a similar accolade by Rolling Stone.

Cocker won a Grammy for Up Where We Belong, a duet with Jennifer Warnes used in the 1982 movie An Office And A Gentleman. He was given an OBE in 2007.

Phil Rudd Says He's Returning To AC/DC Despite Legal Problems

Phil Rudd has vowed he'll be behind the drumkit when AC/DC tour the world next year. He's on bail after being charged with threatening to kill and possession of drugs in November - and faces a jail term of up to seven years if he's found guilty.

But the 60-year-old tells One News that the charges are "ludicrous" and adds: "Everyone listens to the wrong people. They should listen to me. I'm a good guy - and a pretty good drummer, by the way. Ask Angus; he'll tell you."

He says of his current predicament: "This has just been a big ball of cheese, and all the rats are gathering and having a piece. That's just life. But that's not who I am."

He adds: "I'm going back to work with AC/DC - and I don't care who likes it and who doesn't."

The Who Recruit Joan Jett To Open North American Tour

Joan Jett will celebrate her forthcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with a victory lap in the form of a North American arena tour opening for the Who.

Jett and the Who have history together, as she noted in a press statement. "After [her former band] the Runaways ended, the Who and [their then-manager] Bill Curbishley stepped up, and let me use their studio, Ramport," Jett said.

"That gave me the freedom to start my label, Blackheart Records. I've modeled my career and my company after their amazing organization. I'm so happy to be part of their 50th anniversary tour. No one personifies Rock and Roll Royalty more than the Who."

AC/DC Frontman Had Doubts About New Album

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has admitted he wasn't certain he could deliver on 17th album Rock Or Bust. But he believes the nervous energy surrounding the band has added an extra dimension to the recordings.

Rock Or Bust was released earlier this month. It's their first title without mainman Malcolm Young, who had to retire due to his dementia. The future of drummer Phil Rudd is in doubt as a result of his current legal issues.

In a recent interview just released by the BBC, Johnson says: "I've got to stick my hand up and tell the truth - I went to Vancouver with the boys and I hadn't sung a song in anger in five and a half years.

"I went with my fingers crossed and my eyes shut into the singing booth. I was just so happy that it came out good; the band was swinging and I think we all got carried away."
