Eddie Cochran was one of Rock 'n' Roll’s first legends, due to an early accidental death.
A great performer of rockabilly music, and one of its most exciting and dynamic guitar players.
As a young teenager Eddie had already become quite an accomplished guitarist and would rarely be seen without his most prized possession, practicing the licks and styles of country pickers like Chet Atkins.
Late 1954, when still only sixteen, Eddie teamed up with his namesake Hank Cochran to form a duo known as The Cochran Brothers (though Hank was no relation).
The Cochran Brothers style changed significantly in the year or so between their recordings for Ekko.
In the intervening period a certain Elvis Presley had started creating quite a stir in the South with his famed and controversial performances on shows like the Louisiana Hayride.
