history through portraiture

he's a rainbow

he's a rainbow

from 30.00

art/history: first of all, this is NOT that ribisi fella! this is somethin' else - someone who should have eclipsed elvis. in many ways, he did. he was more humble, more talented - even on his earliest singles, he experimented with multitracking, distortion & overdubbing - & wrote his own material. your first exposure to his music was probably through a sex pistols or sid vicious single. treat yourself to the originals, though, & enjoy the short rainbow burst of his life. a '77 special was never on his cards. his hire car - speeding, despite repeated requests to the driver from its passengers to slow down & be sensible - hit a kerb in chippenham, wiltshire & threw everyone onto the verge. the crash was fatal for eddie cochran, who, having shielded his girlfriend from the impact, died #otd in 1960 at the age of 21. it's still the most exciting thing ever to have happened in chippenham. i know. i used to live there.
