Eddie Cochran would have been 72 yesterday. Of course, he died in 1960 at the very young age of 21 near Bath, England when the car he was riding in crashed. Cochran was thrown from the car and died of head injuries the next day. His tour mate, Gene Vincent, survived, though badly injured.
Today's SOTW, Milk Cow Blues, was recorded live in England in February of 1960, using local musicians (as the UK would not allow him to bring American musicians to the country). Cochran's legendary guitar skills are on great display here.
The video of C'mon Everybody was recorded in '59. Enjoy
