This feature-length documentary portrays the turbulent life and extraordinary talent of the late blues and soul singer Joe Cocker. A former gas fitter from Sheffield, Joe Cocker was catapulted to world stardom in 1969 at Woodstock with his legendary performance of "A Little Help from My Friends". His subsequent 1970 "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" tour of America is now seen as a milestone in rock history. However, as his stardom increased and the pressures mounted, Joe Cocker's inner demons took him on a path of self-destruction that he was fortunate to survive. Through archive interviews with Cocker himself and contributions from his family, friends, and the legendary songwriters and musicians he collaborated with, alongside electric live performance footage from across his career, "Mad Dog With Soul" documents how Joe overcame his struggles with alcohol and drugs to rebuild his reputation as one of rock 'n' roll's all-time great vocalists.
