Los Angeles: Rock star Joe Cocker has died after a long battle with lung cancer. He was 70. Cocker passed away at his residence in Colorado Monday, label Sony said in a statement, reports telegraph.co.uk. He is survived by his wife Pam.

Paul McCartney, former band member of the Beatles, expressed his grief.

"I knew him through the years as a good mate and I was so sad to hear that he had been ill and really sad to hear that he has passed away. He was a great guy, a lovely guy who brought so much to the world. We'll all miss him."
