Eddie Cochran 1960 UK Tour


Thanks JC, Mike and Defender for dropping by and taking the time to remember Eddie Cochran on the 60th anniversary of his death with a message here and to all the contributors (and maybe some quiet readers too) who have hopefully found something of interest in this thread.

The UK tour was such a big breakthrough for Eddie yet he probably never realised the enormous and enduring impact he had. Today, reflecting on this tour, perhaps the best words were the ones his mother spoke on the 1982 Arena documentary-

"Eddie was not very impressed with himself. I think he under-rated himself, but he was determined that he was going to be a star someday and I think he made it, in England".
