JOE FINALLY DECIPHERED!

Posted By on Thu, Jun 26, 2008 at 6:26 PM

Joe Cocker is opening for the Steve Miller Band (always a great show, no matter what your age) at Pine Knob (still refuse to call it DTE) tomorrow night. The only reason we mention this is that after all these years, someone posting on youtube has finally come to our...
