EDDIE COCHRAN WOULD HAVE BEEN 80 TODAY


Brian Setzer’s idol Eddie Cochran was born in Oklahoma City 80 years ago today. Best kknown for his hits of “Summertime Blues” and “C’mon Everybody”, this track didn’t even make the top 50 of the American charts, but “Somethin Else” remains one of my top 10 favorite rockers of all time. The kinescope audio muffles much of the sons punch and impact, but it is fun to atch this 1959 clip of him lip synching it on American Bandstand…
Snuff Garrett told me once he was at the airport here in the states to pick up Eddie when he was killed on his way to fly back home from England…
…check out some of his tracks on youtube…he made some GREAT records…
…Happy Birthday Eddie…
