Eddie Cochran was only 19 years old when he recorded “Summertime Blues,” a song he wrote with his manager in 45 minutes. A self-taught guitarist, Cochran played all the guitar parts and sang both the lead and bass vocals. Less than two years after “Summertime Blues” became a hit Cochran was killed in a car accident.

Eddie Cochran was born on this date in 1938. A few of his songs are included on today’s playlist.
