Eddie Cochran Wikipedia

My favorite 50's rocker. He had the style, raspy punchy voice, and musical talent. "rockabilly" is also my favorite 50's rock style over the more popular doo wop pop sound. This song for example is one of the most covered in music history and for good reason because it lays down a good groove with the rhythm while lyrically talking about more realistic issues of the youth of the day like being at an age where it's time to get a job rather than worry about who your taking to the sock hop.

He's probably my favourite from that era too ANTHEM, as an ex session man he certainly had the licks.

Too bad he died so young because he lots of potential. Buddy Hollie was also great and had great potential.

Yeah and I think he put himself across his girlfriend to protect her in the crash, what a guy. He, Buddy, Cliff Gallup, Chuck Berry and Scotty Moore did so much for the guitar in early Rock 'N' Roll.

I read something last year about if Eddie had survived the car crash the doctor's reckoned that he would have had the mind of a child with a mental age of 4-5 years old.

A BIG LOSS to early ROCK & ROLL and probably to 1960s, 70s & 80s ROCK MUSIC had Eddie lived??.

If that is true I suppose it was better that he passed on rather than linger like that but I suppose it depends on how one might look at it. And I agree, he had much more to do and would have been an even bigger influence than he already is.

Apparently wot i've read about Eddie he was one of the very first (if not the first?) early rock musician's to ''use the studio'' to enhance his own studio recordings and use such things as 'double tracking' and such like.

A long with Buddy Holly Eddie Cochran was a VERY BIG LOSS to early Rock music.
