From Paul and Ringo:
Sir Paul said: 'It's really sad to hear about Joe's passing. He was a lovely northern lad who I loved a lot and, like many people, I loved his singing.
'I was especially pleased when he decided to cover With A Little Help From My Friends and I remember him and (producer) Denny Cordell coming round to the studio in Savile Row and playing me what they'd recorded and it was just mind-blowing, totally turned the song into a soul anthem and I was forever grateful for him for doing that.
'I knew him through the years as a good mate and I was so sad to hear that he had been ill and really sad to hear today that he had passed away.
'He was a great guy, a lovely guy who brought so much to the world and we'll all miss him.'
Beatles drummer Ringo Starr paid tribute to his friend, tweeting: 'Goodbye and God bless to Joe Cocker from one of his friends, peace and love.'
