Eddie Cochran (October 3, 1938–April 17, 1960)


Eddie Cochran had a brief career, but a lasting influence on rock music
with his rockabilly songs, such as “C’mon Everybody,” “Somethin’ Else,”
and “Summertime Blues”. Cochran died at the young age of 21 in 1960
when the car he was riding in crashed while on tour in England. He died 
of his injuries the following day. The other passengers, songwriter Sharon
Sheeley
, who was Eddie’s fiancé, and singer Gene Vincent survived the 
accident.
