I could never get past his hair. He always seemed like a bit of a joke to me because of it.

Thanks for posting, Mike. A friend of mine was totally hip to this guy when I barely knew who the Beatles were. RIP to one of the great characters in rock music.

Godspeed Wayne.

I saw him and the CC Riders back in the 70's in Omaha.

Was exciting to even just hear the band let alone Wayne's show.

It is what it was.



Wayne had his own mojo.

Godfrey mentioned Omaha.

A few years ago I worked with a bass player that said that his band appeared with Wayne Cochran on a Midwest tour in the '70's which included Lincoln & Omaha.

My friend Dave said that Jaco Pastorious was the bass player for Wayne Cochran then. I have seen videos on YouTube confirming this.

As an aside, I got a call in 1979 to work with Wayne Cochran as a guitar player. I recall that I was basically going to have to be in Vegas to start working around Christmas. Having not been at home for Christmas in years, I passed. Soon after, I went off to study engineering in college.
