Eddie Cochran (1938 - 1960) was an American musician who earned a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. His rockabilly songs were covered by many later artists, including Led Zeppelin. Cochran experimented with multitrack recording and overdubbing, and is credited as one of the first to use an unwound third string in order to "bend" notes up a whole tone.

Eddie Cochran was killed, while on tour in the UK, in a single vehicle crash when he was only 21 years old. During the time that the taxi and its contents were at the local police station a police cadet taught himself to play guitar on Cochran's impounded Gretsch.
