Never forgotten, forever Eddie Cochran.
59 years ago, Mr. Cochran entered eternity. Rock on, Eddie!
My favourite shot of Eddie...from “The Girl Can’t Help It”.
It's just so succinct- Curtain. Magnatone. Guitar. Violet wash. Spotlight. Just perfect, Leon Shamroy was so clever at maximising visual impact with minimum fuss.
Love the taped 'mark' on the floor too.
Fats Murdock was right, this guy did have a new sound!
My favourite rock'n'roller bar none, the coolest of the cool.
His best friend, Charlie Gracie, is STILL tearing it up around Philly!
Me n' Dibbs with Charlie
