Profile of the performer Eddie Cochran: Born : October 03, 1938 // Albert Lea, Minnesota, USA

Died : April 17, 1960 // Chippenham, Wiltshire, UK

An extraordinarily talented guitarist, singer and songwriter of the rock and roll era. His music influenced later artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and many others.



Cochran's parents moved from Oklahoma City to Albert Lea, Minnesota, where he was born. The family moved back to Oklahoma briefly, before finally settling in Bell Gardens, LA, California.



As an LA teenager Cochran became a talented musician, with a circle of friends that included Connie 'Guybo' Smith- who's nickname would later become one of his song titles. Influenced by the works of Merle Haggard & Hank Williams he teamed up with Hank Cochran (unrelated), playing dance halls, fairs and schools as they were too young to play in 'redneck bars'.



They later called themselves [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Cochran+Brothers%2C+The]The Cochran Brothers[/url], touring the south-western states and appearing on the 'California Hayride' show. They recorded two 'hillbilly' records with Ekko Records in 1955 and did a promotional tour, meeting Elvis Presley on the Dallas 'Big D Jamboree' show. The duo auditioned for Sun Records in Memphis but split up shortly after making "Fool's Paradise"- their third recording on Ekko- a song that shows a strong Presley influence, assisted by the co-writing of Jerry Capehart.



In 1956 Cochrane teamed up with Capehart and was signed to [l=Liberty] in 1957, although he still appeared on the labels of friends Capehart and Sylvester Cross- spending time in LA's Gold Star studio producing, writing and recording backing vocals on labels such as [l=Crest], [l=Zephyr], Crash, [l=Vik], along with Silver, on which he recorded "Guybo"- also known as 'Drum City'. He also appeared in two films.



Following up on his increasing American success Cochran toured the UK in 1960, joining up with Gene Vincent and Ronnie Hawkins to appear on popular TV & radio shows and the concert hall circuit. His girlfriend, songwriter Sharon Shari Sheeley, later joined them. The tour was a resounding success.



On Sunday 17th April - the day following the tour- Cochran, Vincent and Sheeley were on their way to the airport to return to the United States in the back seat of a car (also occupied by deputy tour manager Patrick Tompkins in the front seat), driven by hired taxi-driver George Martin. The vehicle left the road and hit a lampost. Sheeley suffered a broken pelvis but managed to fully recover. Vincent suffered broken ribs & collarbone and sustained injuries to an already weak leg that left him with a limp for the rest of his life. Cochran died in hospital that day from severe head injuries aged 21.



Eerily, Cochran had just released a single, co-written with brother Bob Cochran, entitled "Three Steps to Heaven." It reached No. 1 in the charts, helping rock 'n roll come of age in the UK.



Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 (Performer).
