Another rocking jewish musician.

One of my all time favorite rock singers...I find out now after 40 yrs of listening to him that he is a Jew!

Joe Cocker.
And I thought maybe Barry Manilow was one of the only ones -- pop singer that is ( just kidding here). action/joe-cocker-to-headline-israeli-peace-tival-at-1st-gilboa-festival-video
