i keep right on a-dreamin' and a-thinkin' to myself: when it all comes true man, wow, that's somethin' else

Still underrated, still underappreciated and still sounds wonderful. The man who taught UK guitarists how to rock.

Michael said...

He looks too tired to rock.

Twenty Flight Rock syndrome

Joe Brown tells a very good tale of Cochran showing him how to get that guitar sound when he was touring the UK with Gene Vincent.
Cochrans lyrics always astonish me, rhey are so articulate!(for example i told my congressman and he said,quote, I'd like to help you son but your to young to vote! That "he said,quote" bit gets me every time!) Perhaps only Chuck Berry wrote more lyrically adept R'n'R songs. Of coures sometimes I think Cochran's lyrical brilliance is why, even though I dig him (of course), he's not my favourite rockin' troubadour, just a bit too grammar school y'know.
