Eddie Cochran

Post by CoolClaret » Fri Apr 17, 2020 3:55 pm

Today marks 60 years since his passing.

He died in a car crash near Bath aged only 21, absolutely no time to go. Having done so much already

This man changed music today as we know it - Paul McCartney played his song 'twenty flight rock' as an audition to a band called the Quarrymen - which obviously renamed the Beatles and the rest is history.

Cochran inspired countless other bands and artists, with a plethora of groups covering the famous song 'summertime blues'.

Wow...60 years...brings back some great memories of my teenage years in Burnley .He was a great guitar player..a session man long before he became famous..21...no age at all.Those opening riffs to his two biggest hits still get to me but besides those two my favourites were Weekend and Somethin' Else.

Somewhere in my loft, unless my sister and brother in law 'borrowed the collection', I have 'weekend' in the 45s largely bought by my mum, off a friend of my sister, who sold her lots of the songs that have lasted until now, as timeless, in favour of his next purchases.

Too young to remember him but no doubting the quality of them riffs, timeless and instantly recognisable.

Whenever you're sad
Whenever you're blue
Whenever the Clarets are playing
In league or cup we'll fight like phook
To keep the Clarets flag flying .

A cricket field end Classic in the sixties.. :D

Couldn’t agree more. You’ve inspired me to pop downstairs whip my vinyl copy out and stick it under the needle.

Lockdown happy days😀

The opening bars of Something Else are phenomenal.

Imagine, back in the day, being a teenager, listening to that for the very first time. There was no such thing as the Beatles, Stones, Led Zeppelin and all those "rock n roll " bands that came after, and were influenced by that sound. When the needle dropped and you heard that, it must have been mind blowing. !

Sad to think what be could have achieved if his life hadn't been cut so short.
