These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Eddie Cochran
Awesome Music: Plenty, especially songs in which Eddie lets loose with rip-roaring soloing, quite hardcore for music from The Fifties.
Broken Base: A relatively obscure one, and the base has long since been "reassembled." Towards the end of his career, many die-hard greasers and rockers noticed album covers and photographs featured Cochran in increasingly "pop" attire such as sweaters and colored shirts as opposed to jeans and darker clothes. They didn't like it none.
Epic Riff: "Summertime Blues" and "C'mon Everybody". The rich, full sound of these riffs were the result of copious overdubbing, a novelty at the time.
Harsher in Hindsight: "Three Stars", a tribute to the victims of "The Day the Music Died", and how they died so young. Cochran would himself pass away less than a year after its recording, at the age of 22.
