Joe Cocker: Mad Dog With Soul is the definitive documentary on the great Sheffield soul and blues singer's life and 50 year career.
It is the story of a rock music legend. As a former gas fitter who spent six years playing in Sheffield pubs, Joe Cocker then catapulted to a world of stardom following a spectacular appearance at Woodstock in 1969. This film explores the inner anguish which ironically caused his voice to sound so unique.
" paints a no-holds-barred portrait of the powerfully-voiced survivor"
" provides many striking images..fascinating insights..into one of rock's most strange
and enduring success stories"
"contributors Billy Joel, Randy Newman, Jimmy Webb, Glyn Johns, Rita Coolidge, Michael Lang and more ... all agree on one thing.
that voice – a primal, gravelly, intense, unearthly thing – was one of rock’s greatest, most distinctive instruments."
