A Rock and Roll Icon

Eddie Cochran is one of my favourite musicians of all time.
His guitar playing was ahead of its time and his voice was simply incredible.
This guy could sing a gritty rock and roll number and then a sweet ballad and sound equally stunning on both.
Eddie also wrote most of his own songs which was rare back in the fifties.
Summertime blues is an absolute classic with its rocking rhythm and teenage angst lyrics.
His sudden death in a car accident at the age of 21 in 1960 was a huge loss to anyone who loved his music.
Check out some of his great songs below.
