Synopsis

Outrageously talented, remarkably handsome, internationally renowned, and dead at the age of 21. More than 40 years after the tragic car crash that killed him, Eddie Cochran remains one of rock and roll's most lamented What Ifs. A trailblazing guitarist, gifted vocalist, hit-making composer and arranged, and budding whiz-kid producer, Cochran quickly ascended from Midwestern obscurity in the late '50s to becoming one of rock amd roll's leading lights. He penned or recorded many of the most recognised songs in rock history - Summertime Blues, Nervous Breakdown, Somethin' Else, C'Mon Everybody, Twenty Flight Rock and Sittin' in the Balcony. Co-authored by Cochran's nephew, also a gifted musician - this is the first official biography of this uniquely American rock legend, who was among the first to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The book is a detailed portrait of Cochran's personal and professional triumphs, with fascinatin insight into the rock pioneer's life that only a family member can provide.

Ein umfassender und lebendig geschriebener Einblick in das Leben des vielleicht grössten Talents der Rock & Roll - Geschichte. Eddie's Neffe Bobby Cochran bietet eine gelungene Mischung aus Fakten und stark emotional besetzten persönlichen Eindrücken. Vieles wirkt auch durch die Tatsache, daß Bobby selbst aus der Perspektive des Profi-Musikers schreibt, sehr greifbar und authentisch. Es bleibt das Bild eines genialen Musikers, der seiner Zeit weit voraus war - und eines Menschen, dessen Ausstrahlung niemanden kalt ließ. Lesenswert!!

The Music Lives 9. August 2003
Von D. Sean Brickell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to break this review into two parts. One is the writing, which is a solid 5 stars. The other is the storyline, which is only 3 stars. The average is 4 stars.
My main complaint is having to read the life story of Eddie's nephew. Albeit an acomplished guitarist in his own right, not the subject I wanted to learn about in this book.
When the book is on the genius of EC, the pages fly by. Whilst reading about nephew Bobby, it was like pan-mining for gold nuggets: a lot of muddy water with the rare shinny moment.
Ms. Van Hecke has done another terrific writing job, however, equal to her work on Eddie's mentor and running mate, Gene Vincent. The book coulda been as good as that bio, but for the stuff I didn't need to know about Bobby.
Wish I could have given this 5 stars. . .

Three Steps to Heaven - The Eddie Cochran Story 8. Juli 2006
Von Steven Pearl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you are fan of classic Rock and Roll, killer Rockabilly and a part of American history that most of the history books left out, then BUY THIS BOOK! Eddie Cochran was an American Rock and Roll pioneer, brilliant guitarist, songwriter, singer, and experimenter of sounds who used the studio as another instrument much like Les Paul did. He was way ahead of his time and was cut down way before his time at the ripe old age of 21 on April 17th, 1960. I have been a diehard Eddie Cochran fan since I first discovered his music in 1977 and since then there was no looking back. This book, co written by Eddie's Nephew Bobby, a great musician and producer in his own right, is more like two books in one, Eddie's story and Bobby's as well which has some striking parallels to his legendary Uncle. The Eddie part of the book adds a human being to the legend who influenced the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Winter, the Sex Pistols and countless others who later made a serious mark in the world of music. I'm usually a slow reader but I couldn't put this book down and finished it in 2 days. Eddie Cochran would've fit perfectly into the 1960s, 70s, 80s and beyond but unfortunately fate didn't have that in store for him. I could easily see Eddie writing, jamming and performing with the likes of Eric Clapton (and showing him a thing or two!), Jeff Beck, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and many others. In fact John Lennon and George Harrison were among the many British kids who flocked to his shows on that ill fated British tour and were influenced heavily by the good looking kid from the U.S. and his Gretch guitar. The only regret I have is that this book wasn't 10,000 pages long because I didn't want it to end! Buy this book! It will bring you a lot of reading pleasure and you'll want to read it again and again, much like a classic movie you love. Speaking of movies I'm still waiting for a good Eddie Cochran flick to come out and there isn't a better book to base a movie on than this one. BUY THIS BOOK!!! You'll be glad you did! - Steven Pearl

This book was an absolute pleasure to read and I couldn't put

it down. As well as valuable insight into the life of Eddie

Cochran, it was interesting to read about Bobby's life and how

Eddie was such an inspiration to him and his guitar playing.

It's one of those rare books that you find and treasure....each

time I read it I feel like I knew them personally. To anyone

interested in Eddie, rockabilly, or some awesome Gretsch guitar

playing, READ THIS NOW!!! What are you waiting for???? This book

is SOMETHING ELSE!!

I Remember 1. Januar 2007
Von Eddie Cochran 25 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The first Eddie Cochran recording I bought in 1972 was the double-LP Legendary Masters United Artists#9959. I now have all of his recordings, the 3 VHS movies Eddie appeared in, the DVD Buddy Holly Story with Gary Busey and Jerry Zaremba as Eddie; the DVD La Bamba with Brian Setzer and his Gretsch as Eddie. He is also portrayed in Renee Zellweger's "Shake Rattle and Rock!" Eddie first toured with Buddy Holly in the November 1957 show that included the Everlys, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, LaVern Baker and Paul Anka. Earlier in 1957 Eddie released his first UK single Twenty Flight Rock. On 7/6/57 Paul McCartney impressed John of the Quarry Men with his rendition of it after watching John's version of the Del-Vikings Come Go With Me. Lennon also hired Paul's friend George who played Raunchy note-for-note on the bus. 3 years later the trio attended Eddie's March 14, 1960 concert at the Liverpool Empire where the shrieking screaming fans drowned out most of the sound. This concert also persuaded them that they needed amps. There is something about the sound that Eddie generated on that $385 orange amber red 1956 Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins Western model serial#16942 with gold anodized Bigsby tremolo, which Eddie had modified. He replaced the front one of the pair of De Armond Dynasonic pickups with a black covered Gibson P-90 pickup to get the mellow Gibson L5 sound. Chet Atkins began designing Gretsches in 1955 and played guitar on Elvis's Heartbreak Hotel and the Everly's Wake Up Little Suzie / Bye Bye Love. When recording, increase the 'record' level during the guitar solos and instrumentals. This book has a lot of info on Eddie. For first time buyers I would recommend the May 3, 2005 double-CD Best of Eddie Cochran by Eddie Cochran; or the Eddie Cochran 4 CD box set on Liberty EMI UK which has more instrumentals. Also check out The Very Best Of Chet Atkins 2CD set, 30 of the 40 songs are instrumentals and Chet is pictured with a Gretsch 6120 on the cover.
