Born in a small town to humble beginnings, Eddie unleashed a wave of raw talent and energy that defied the norms of the era as he became a trailblazer of rockabilly. His smash-hits aSummertime Bluesa, Camon Everybodya and aThree Steps to Heavena are still entertaining audiences and influencing musicians today, some sixty years after they were first recorded.A Eddie Cochran: In Person A not only details the life and career of a rocknroll icon, but it also tells the extraordinary story of how a collector came into possession of the contents of Eddieas childhood bedroom, which had remained undisturbed and unseen by anyone outside of the Cochran family since his death.
