Eddie Cochran Tribute Show
Somethin’ Else the Band featuring Bobby Cochran played a wonderful show last night here in Kinross at Backstage at the Green Hotel for Mundell Music. It was good to see a full turnout on Saturday 27th Feb for the Band and we look forward to his return.
Rock & Roll” the way it’s MEANT to be. That’s the motto of SOMETHIN’ ELSE ! – a powerhouse band of highly accomplished and revered musicians delivering a truly authentic and electrifying mix of rock and roll, roots, blues, rockabilly and the best in Americana.
Expect a blistering set of classics from the golden age of rock, fronted by world class guitarist Bobby Cochran whose uncle Eddie (yes, THAT Eddie Cochran!) was the major influence behind his career. Bobby keeps the Cochran legacy alive, performing bona fide renditions of classic hits like “Summertime Blues”, “Three Steps To Heaven”, “C’Mon Everybody” and “Twenty Flight Rock” as part of the band’s set – not
forgetting “Somethin’ Else”, the inspiration for the band’s name.
Bobby Cochran, lead guitarist, singer, writer & producer, was influenced at an early age by his uncle Eddie Cochran *(Summertime Blues, My Way, Twenty Flight Rock, Something Else…). At 13 he set his aim on becoming a master guitarist & went on to play in many prominent groups including Steppenwold, Grateful Dead, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Little Feat, Weather Report & The Righteous Brothers. Guitar Player Magazine described Bobby as “exhilarating, one of the 12 best guitarists in the world, his playing glistens with spontaneity, brilliant”.
Bobby has been compared to some of the greats – Jimi Hendrix, Danny Gatton, Duane Allman, Albert Lee & Eric Clapton. He is virtuoso in many styles of playing – rock ‘n’ roll, country, slide, rockabilly surf! and performed all these styles at his Scottish show.
