EDDIE COCHRAN - Summertime Blues
In 1958, 19- year old singer and movie star Eddie Cochran co-wrote and recorded his breakout hit Summertime Blues. The song was the b-side Love Again, a crooning teen idle song written by 17-year old Sharon Sheeley. While the ballad did not get much attention, Summertime Blues put Cochran on the charts. Sheeley became Cochran's girlfriend, and was with him two years later when he died riding in the back seat of a wrecked taxi cab while touring the UK. In 1987 Cochran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.
