At 11:50 pm on April 16, 1960, Eddie Cochran was traveling on the A4 near Chippenham after a 13 week tour of the UK, when the speeding taxi blew a tire and crashed into a lamp post on Rowden Hill.

He was taken to St Martin’s Hospital and passed away the next day (April 17, 1960) of head injuries. A memorial stone is located in the old chapel grounds at St Martin’s Hospital. A memorial plaque can also be found next to the sundial at the back of the old chapel.

Cochran was 21 years old and his last record "Three Steps to Heaven" went to #1 in the UK.
