C’mon Everybody! It would have been Eddie Cochran’s birthday today. Man, that’s Somethin’ Else.

Eddie Cochran – Great Hits

Poor Eddie Cochran died in a taxi cab accident in the UK on the way to the airport in 1960 when he was thrown from the car and sustained a fatal head injury. Gene Vincent was with him, and suffered a broken leg which caused him to limp for the rest of his life.

Standout track on this one for me is Eddie’s original “Twenty Flight Rock“.

I saw the Rhythm Pigs once at the old 9:30 club before I lived in DC. I forget what year. I think the original version of Shudder to Think opened for them, and that was the first time I saw them too. There’s a cover of the Peanuts theme on this record! What are these guys up to now?
