A Research Project by Graham Pugh
There's a lot of mis-information
out there about Eddie Cochran. For example, many of his biographies claim
that he was born in Oklahoma City while others say he was born in Albert
Lea, Minnesota. If the latter is true, why did Eddie tell everyone
that he was from Oklahoma City? Find out about this and much more!
Never Before Published Pictures & Information!
Some of the information presented on this site is based
upon 5 years of research and was previously unknown. Read about Eddie's
visits to Oklahoma City and view pictures of local Cochran sites.
It Just Isn't
According to history / legend, the Cochrans loaded up the family car
and left Albert Lea for Bell Gardens, California. This is simply not true!
Before the move to California, they moved back to Oklahoma City.
