I agree. Big fan. But Buddy Holly passed at 22 and look at his back catalogue.

Cochran was a pop singer riding a trend

He wrote the songs though. And they've stood the test of time.

There are some keyboard warriors on the internet who would dismiss Anne Frank as a one-hit wonder... :rolleyes:

That was Barry Manilow wasn't it?

Barry Manilow is much more talented than a lot of people give him credit for.

Yes, but, surprisingly, that particular song was written by Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys.

 

Still a great song either way.

He's a funny looking fella these days though, which also goes for guy who was on too gear this week (Tyler).

The young uns these days wear seatbelts so they get to top the hit parade in their teens and live to enjoy the royalties.

Are these the same brain dead generations who invented the phones that you can listen to Eddie Cochran on?

We are all children, and prisoners, of our own generation.

 

Each generation owes an often unacknowledged and later-realised debt to its predecessors.

 

There are analogies between the surges of rock-and-roll, beatlemania, punk and rap ... in each case, the kids on the street pushed the change, not the prevailing music industry's establishment.

 

Hopefully, we are due another, even though I am probably too old to actually like it.

The entrepreneurs and music industry absolutely created and pushed the change

The kids on the street- are you sure you aren't Rik from the young ones? Just lapped it up

you realy don't have a clue at all -do you?

I do if there's anything to have a clue about

How many of cochranes compositions can anybody remember?

Mean when I'm mad was unintentionally hilarious

Three steps to heaven was twee

Twenty flight rock was brilliant as was summertime blues, something else(done far better by the move though), and of course c'mon everybody(again eclipsed by humble pie )

It's funny you should mention Gene Vincent, he was in the same car when Cochrane was killed.  I was just becoming interested in pop music and Vincent and Cochrane had recorded sessions for "Saturday Club" the big pop show in those days on the Light Programme on Saturday mornings from 9-00 to 12-00.  I was a big Vincent fan, but I also liked Cochrane and certainly at that time he was a bigger star than Vincent.  I recall, "Cut across Shorty," and a version of "Hallelujah I Love Her so" by Eddie were pretty good.  But it's true he wasn't really old enough to be in the same league with Jerry Lee, Chuck Berry etc.  I like Buddy Holly and some of his stuff is still fresh today.  IMO no Buddy Holly, no Beatles.
