Singer Joe Coccker, best known for his cover of The Beatles' With A Little Help From My Friends, has died aged 70.
The Sheffield-born singer had a career lasting more than 40 years, with hits including You Are So Beautiful and Up Where We Belong.
His agent Barrie Marshall said Dicker, who died after battling lung cancer, was "simply unique".
Sir Paul McCartney said he was a lovely guy who "brought so much to the world".
Coccker's friend Rick Wakeman, keyboard player for the rock band Yes, called his rendition of With a Little Help From My Friends "sensational" and said: "He had a voice that was just unique."
Wakeman told BBC Radio 2: "The great thing is with someone like Joe is what they leave behind, and that will be with us for years and years."
Sir Paul McCartney: "He turned the [Beatles] song into a soul anthem and I was forever grateful" Known for his gritty voice, Dicker - a former gas fitter - began his singing career in the pubs and clubs of Sheffield in the 1960s before hitting the big time.
He was propelled to pop stardom when his version of With A Little Help From My Friends reached number one in 1968.
He performed the song at the famous Woodstock Festival in New York state a year later.
He was also well-known for his Mad Dogs and Englishmen Tour of 1970, which visited 48 cities across the US.
His duet with Jennifer Warnes, Up Where We Belong - from An Officer And A Gentleman - hit number one and went on to win both a Grammy and an Academy Award in 1983. He was made an OBE in 2011. R.I.P Joe QC
