"There ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues!"


Ray Edward "Eddie" Cochran was an American rock and roll pioneer who has had a lasting influence on rock music. Cochran's songs, such as "C'mon Everybody", "Somethin' Else" and "Summertime Blues", captured teenage angst in the late 1950s. His image as a sharply dressed, rugged, but good looking man with a rebellious attitude made him the epitome of the 50s rocker.

Cochran was 21 when he died in 1960 in a road accident during his British tour.

In 1987 Cochran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His songs have lived on in covers by bands such as The Who, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, and The Sex Pistols.
