Singer Joe Cocker, best known for his cover of The Beatles' With A Little Help From My Friends, has died aged 70.
The Sheffield-born singer had a career lasting more than 40 years, with hits including You Are So Beautiful and Up Where We Belong.
His agent Barrie Marshall said Cocker, who died after battling LUNG CANCER, was "simply unique".
Sir Paul McCartney said he was a lovely guy who "brought so much to the world".
Cocker's friend Rick Wakeman, keyboard player for the rock band Yes, called his rendition of With a Little Help From My Friends "sensational" and said: "He had a voice that was just unique."
Wakeman told BBC Radio 2: "The great thing is with someone like Joe is what they leave behind, and that will be with us for years and years."

Veteran's Day is special. On this day we honor our nation's heroes, who died fighting for our country in foreign shores. Without our brave soldiers, we would not have known peace or tranquility. Let us honor the martyrs who laid down their life to protect their country from external threats.

Yesterday, nearly every site on the web reported on a Red Bull settlement that essentially gave away free money. And that's exactly the problem.
Yesterday, the world received some truly wonderful news: A group of Red Bull customers took the company’s “It Gives You Wings” slogan a little too literally, sued the drink maker for false advertising, and forced Red Bull to give us all money. And the best part? Anyone who bought a Red Bull since 2002 was eligible to request a piece of the settlement—either $10 cash or $15 dollars in Red Bull products—with no proof of purchase required. Isn’t America great?
Well, apparently it’s not as great as I thought because the Internet ruined everything.
Here’s why: In the settlement, Red Bull didn’t actually promise to give everyone who applied $10 to $15. Instead, they capped the handouts at $13 million. As Buzzfeedreported, if too many people make claims, the settlement will be diluted so it can be split evenly. Some quick back of the envelope math, and we can figure out that if everyone requested the cash award, each claimant’s return would start shrinking after 1.3 million people applied.
And how many claims did Red Bull actually receive? We don’t know for sure, yet, but Buzzfeed’s post alone has already been viewed more than 4.6 million times, and the settlement website was slammed with so much traffic yesterday that it crashed. Even if we assume that only people who read that specific article asked for a piece of the pie, and ignore the legions of other outlets who reported the news, we’re still down to a new settlement value of slightly under $3 a person — or about the retail price of a 12-ounce can of the stuff.
So thanks a lot, everybody. As someone who may have personally contributed to at least half of Red Bull’s sales over the past 12 years, I felt I was due for a little kickback. Now I’m going to have to use my own money to buy more energy drinks…. which, honestly, is probably what I was going to do anyway.

(UPDATED) Performance with The Roots was the first by a Christian rapper on late-night TV.
For the night, Lecrae joined Fallon’s house band, The Roots, for musical interludes between segments. He rapped portions of songs from his new album, including “Nuthin,” “Fear,” “All I Need is You,” “Say I Won’t,” and “Welcome to America.”
The Tonight Show posted a clip of Lecrae explaining his inspiration for the lead single on Anomaly. "I made a battle cry for substance in music," he said.
James Poyser and Frank Knuckles, both members of the band, posted pictures with Lecrae, as fans and friends tweeted along. #LecraeOnFallon trended nationwide.
Following the show, Lecrae posted on Facebook, "It's a lot to take in. I haven't had time to download it all. I am so grateful for the support. I know I represent something much bigger than me. Thank you! I thank God for a voice into culture. I pray I use it wisely."
“I'm really excited for Lecrae,” tweeted fellow Christian rapper Sho Baraka. “I pray for wisdom for that brother. This can't be easy navigating new waters.#116Circa03.”
To borrow some popular lingo, Christian rapper Lecrae is blowing up.
His latest album, Anomaly, topped iTunes on the day it was released and took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200—a first for a Gospel act.
On Thursday, Lecrae will become the first from the resurgent ranks of Reformed rappers to appear on a late-night network show when he sits in with The Roots, the house band for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He is expected to perform his single, “All I Need is You.”
Lecrae's Tonight Show gig follows recent features on MTV.com, the Billboard site, and the front page of the Washington Times. CT interviewed Lecrae in 2011 on how he went from addiction to self to Jesus becoming his "drug of choice."
As Christian hip-hop grows in popularity and theological depth (and also develops a critical edge), Lecrae is celebrated an artist who can entertain both Christian and mainstream audiences; last year, he toured with a hip-hop festival featuring secular artists such as Wu-Tang Clan, Kendrick Lamar, and Common.
Previous Christian acts who have made late-night appearances (under Fallon’s predecessor, Jay Leno) include Third Day, Switchfoot, and For King & Country.
A 2013 CT cover story examined the leaders of Christian hip-hop and how the movement could call the American church back to the gospel—and hip-hop back to its roots. CT also spotlighted the centrality of Reformed theology to Christian hip-hop.
One of Lecrae's new songs, "Non-Fiction" name-drops pastor Tim Keller as well as CT executive editor Andy Crouch and his book Culture Making.
CT coverage of Christian hip-hop includes what Shai Linne's takedown of Joyce Meyers suggests about Reformed rap, a defense of using the n-word in certain songs, a Katy Perry ripoff lawsuit, and the lack of female artists.
Earlier this summer, the magazine also celebrated Jimmy Fallon’s new comedic tone on The Tonight Show.

The correct way to discipline your child is always a murky and controversial topic. Many people that physically beating a child in regard to punishment is an ill serving and unnecessary way to instill a lesson, and in some cases worthy of jail time. Others who have grown up accustom to physical harm as a means of punishment see no wrong, as it was used on them as a child.
Last week arguably the leagues best player other than a quarterback, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson turned himself in after his four-year-old son indirectly went to the police after being beaten by a “switch” or thin tree branch repeatedly over the lower extremities. This comes after a long line of domestic violence occurrences with many star players around the league and of course in the wake of the tapes of Ray Rice beating his then fiancé to unconsciousness in an Atlantic City elevator earlier this year.
Though deactivated by the Vikings, according to sources Peterson will serve no jail time and could be back with the team as early as this week.

Apple fans, the time has finally come. We have seen a number of exciting new devices announced in the past few weeks — check out our hands-on previews of the Galaxy Note 4 and Motorola’s new Moto X for two great examples. But nothing, and we mean nothing, has been as hotly anticipated as Apple’s huge iPhone 6, iPhone phablet and iWatch announcements.
Now, after months of leaks and rumors, it’s finally time for Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup and its first ever wearable device to become a reality.
Tuesday’s Apple event is going to be the company’s biggest and most important press conference in years, so there was absolutely no way that Apple was going to make fans follow along with live blogs. Instead, the company is providing live streaming video of the entire show so the world can follow along as Apple unveils the product lineup that is expected to lead to its most profitable quarter ever.
What should we expect to see during the event? If the dozens upon dozens of leaks and rumors leading up to today are any indication, we’ll see two completely redesigned iPhone handsets, a wearable device that has been referred to as the “iWatch,” a brand new mobile payment system and plenty more.
For a rundown of everything you can expect to see during Tuesday’s event, be sure to check out our iPhone 6 rumor roundup.
Apple’s new iPhones will be the stars of the show, of course, and the company is expected to unveil a flagship phone with a 4.7-inch display as well as a new iPhone phablet with a 5.5-inch screen. In fact, videos of a working iPhone 6 recently leaked for the first time ever. But as great as leaked videos are, there’s nothing like seeing the official unveiling of these exciting new devices.
So, how exactly can you watch all the action live?
On a Mac or iOS device
Apple is providing users a number of ways to watch the action live. On a Mac computer or an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, visiting this link on Apple’s website will allow you to stream live video of the event.
Apple notes that its streaming video will only work in “Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later.”
On Windows and Android
Sadly, Apple’s live stream doesn’t officially support any Windows or Android devices. Crazy, we know. There’s no guarantee it’ll work reliably or at all, but you can try a user
