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.
