John Belushi Imitates Joe Cocker On SNL While Cocker Is Performing
It Was today in 1976 that John Belushi did an imitation of Joe Cocker as he performed just a few steps away on Saturday Night Live.The year was 1975 and Saturday Night Live was in its first season, featuring an all star cast. It was right around this time in 1975 when Joe Cocker was tapped to perform on the show. He did perform without knowing that John Belushi was only a few steps away imitating him. I think that the audience was more into watching Belushi’s performance than Jo’s. Joe Cocker and his wife apparently took offense to Belushi’s performance, however it is hilarious. If you have not had a chance to view it is a must see. Enjoy!
