Lightbulb Twenty Flight Rock

January 8, 1960, rocker Eddie Cochran--perhaps most famous for "Summertime Blues"--completed his last formal studio recordings, at Goldstar Studio in Hollywood. The next day, he left for an extended tour of the UK, arriving there on January 10th in order to join up with the Gene Vincent Show. Several popularly successful television performances featuring Cochran and Gene Vincent were broadcast in the UK over the next several weeks..slightly over three months after his arrival, the result of an automobile accident that occurred near 12 midnight on April 16th, 1960; he died from his injuries the next afternoon. (note in passing that author Albert Camus was killed in an automobile accident on January 4, 1960.) In an improbable twist, the name of the cab driver that fateful night was--George Martin ..Dave Dee of the band Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich, taught himself to play guitar on Cochran's impounded Gretsch.. Earlier in the tour, the same guitar had been carried to the car for Cochran by a young fan, Mark Feld, who would later be known as Marc Bolan of T. Rex and would also die in a car crash...
The Gretsch Company was founded in 1883 by Friedrich Gretsch, a 27 year-old German immigrant recently arrived in the US. Friedrich Gretsch manufactured banjos, tambourines, and drums, until his death in 1895. His son, Fred, moved operations to Brooklyn, New York in 1916. Gretsch then became one of the most prominent manufacturers of American musical instruments..

Cochlin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the COCH gene..The protein encoded by this GENE is highly conserved in human, mouse, and chicken, showing 94% and 79% amino acid identity of human to mouse and chicken sequences, respectively..These cells accompany neurites at the habenula perforata, the opening through which neurites extend to innervate hair cells.. This and the pattern of expression of this gene in chicken inner ear paralleled the histologic findings of acidophilic deposits..are organisms are those that thrive under highly acidic conditions (usually at pH 2.0 or below).. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent to ourselves, to others..We are focused only on our own gain..Where did you get those sun glasses...
