Except the story of EC may be considered a candidate for blues material. Rising star struck down in his prime.
(The first) Summertime Blues – Eddie Cochran – 1958
post by Jack Perkins
In this original version of the song covered many, many times, Cochran chucks the guitar then strums E (3x), A, B (3x). That’s it. Same chords, arranged differently at times throughout the song.
