Ace Cafe London hosts the annual Eddie Cochran Tribute Night next on Saturday 9th April 2022.
The evening at the Ace celebrates Eddie and features the welcome, long awaited and much anticipated, return to the cafe of the highly regarded live rock n’ roll sounds of Darrel Higham & The Enforcers, with DJ Bill Guntrip on the decks spinning the wax.
From performing the song “Twenty Flight Rock” in the1956 film “The Girl Can’t Help It”, and in 1957 staring in his second film, ”Untamed Youth”, it was the 1958 release on Liberty Records of his seminal teenage anthem “Summertime Blues” that established Eddie as one of the great rockers, his sadly brief career included a number of very special hits such as “C’mon, Everybody”, “Somethin’ Else” and “Teenage Heaven”.
Here in the UK on a specially extended tour, and at only 21 years of age, on the 17th April 1960 the legendary USA singer tragically passed, the headlines read “Car crash, Eddie Cochran dies and Gene Vincent is injured”
Being sharply dressed and with a rebellious attitude, Eddie epitomized the stance of the 1950s rocker, and in death he achieved iconic status
Read the story of that ill-fated tour by American Rock ‘n’ Roll Stars, Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran in 1960 organised by British music impresario, Larry Parnes:
