Ray Edward "Eddie" Cochran (October 3, 1938 April 17, 1960) was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. He is considered one of the most influential RockAndRoll artists of the late '50s alongside Music/BuddyHolly and Music/ElvisPresley, among others. Of particular note was his skillful guitar playing, and his pioneering use of studio techniques such as overdubbing. Lyrically, Cochran's material was typically more rebellious than his contemporaries; his most well-known songs typically deal with problematic teenage love, and the acceptance (or rejection) of the responsibilities of adulthood. Cochran was killed in an automobile accident in 1960; his co-passengers, artistic colleague Gene Vincent and Cochran's fiancee Sharon Sheeley, survived.

Often attributed to the briefness of his career and his small number of chart hits, Cochran is not as well remembered as his contemporaries. Nevertheless, Cochran had a profound influence on some of the greatest artists of the 60s such as Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheRollingStones, and Music/TheWho; indeed, Cochran's "Twenty Flight Rock" was the very song a young [[Music/PaulMcCartney Paul [=McCartney=]]] played for Music/JohnLennon to audition for his first group, The Quarrymen. His rough, bass-driven singles such as "Summmertime Blues", "C'mon Everybody", and "Somethin' Else", are often cited as being a heavy influence on punk music, leading certain punk luminaries to dub Cochran the "Grandfather of PunkRock".

* ProperlyParanoid: After [[TheDayTheMusicDied the deaths of]] Music/BuddyHolly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper, Cochran became extremely worried about also dying young and wanted to stop being on the road so much. He still had to perform live, though, due to needing the money, and his fears were realized when he died in a taxi during his 1960 tour in the United Kingdom.

* GriefSong: "Three Stars", a tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson and the infamous "Day the Music Died,". Cochran's voice audibly cracks at several points in the song. What's worse, the poor guy had do record several takes...
