The complete Eddie Cochran biography
Outrageously talented, remarkably handsome, internationally renowned, and dead at the age of 21. More
than 40 years after the tragic car crash that killed him, Eddie Cochran remains one of rock and roll's most lamented What
Ifs. A trailblazing guitarist, gifted vocalist, hit-making composer and arranger, and budding whiz-kid producer, Eddie Cochran
quickly ascended from Midwestern obscurity in the late '50s to become one of nascent rock and roll's leading lights. You'll
read in his biography how he penned or recorded many of the most recognized songs in rock history - Summertime Blues, Nervous
Breakdown, Somethin' Else, C'mon Everybody, Twenty Flight Rock, Sittin' in the Balcony - songs whose distinctive sound and
defiant, often wryly humorous lyrics have been eagerly digested, analyzed and lovingly reinterpreted by generations of rockers
after him, from The Beatles to the Sex Pistols, The Who to U2. Three Steps to Heaven: The Eddie Cochran Story - co-authored
by Cochran's nephew, also a gifted musician - is the first American Eddie Cochran biography of this uniquely American rock
legend, who was among the first to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The book is a detailed portrait of Cochran's
personal and professional triumphs and travails, with fascinating insight into the rock pioneer's life that only a family
member can provide. 33 black and white photographs; Hardcover book.
