About this title

Synopsis:

Before Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, before Carl Perkins and Bo Diddley, there was Eddie Cochran--one of the early teen idols, a star of film and television, and a major influence on generations of rock 'n rollers and rockabilly bands to come, including Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Marc Bolan, Jimi Hendrix, and Brian Setzer. In his all-too-brief professional career, Cochran wrote and recorded four of the greatest rock 'n roll songs of all times-- "Summertime Blues," "C'mon Everybody," Something Else," and the timeless "Three Steps to Heaven." A gifted guitarist and exciting concert performer, as well as an early master of studio overdubbing, Cochran was only 21 years old when he died in an auto accident on his way to the airport in London.

Now, forty years after his tragic death, comes Don't Forget Me: The Eddie Cochran Story, the first biography ever written on this music legend. Chronicling Cochran's life from his birth in Albert Lea, Minnesota in 1938 to playing lead guitar in a hillbilly duo, from becoming one of the most sought-after guitarists on the West Coast to his cameo role in the film The Girl Can't Help It singing "Twenty Flight Rock," and from his first hit, "Sittin' in the Balcony" (1957), to his final groundbreaking tour of England with co-headliner Gene Vincent, the book includes contributions from Cochran's family, friends, and associates, as well as from fellow musicians. Written with the cooperation of Cochran's family, Don't Forget Me includes a hundred rare, unseen photos spanning Eddie's entire career.
