Joe Cocker Wasn’t Really That Sweaty

The footage shows Joe Cocker extremely sweaty during his performance. However, he wasn’t actually sweaty; he had just had a huge amount of water dumped on him.

Due to the heavy rains, the canvas roof was threatening to cave in, so they cut a hole to release the water. It was a smart way to remove the water from the roof, except that Cocker was standing right underneath and was drenched, looking like a drowned rat.
