Black Sabbath Joe Cocker
Ultimate Classic Rock

The mighty Black Sabbath battle Joe Cocker for the right to advance to the semifinals of our September / October Hall of Fame elections. Every two months, our readers will determine which of eight legendary artists or bands is immortalized forever for their contributions to classic-rock history

Emerging from Birmingham, England in the late ’60s, Black Sabbath are widely credited with creating the template for the entire heavy metal genre. Cocker is perhaps the most famous vocal interpreter in classic rock history, boldly making songs by the Beatles and others his own.
