#Fact
1How Sharon and Eddie Cochran became boyfriend and girlfriend formed the basis of one of a series of wildly successful television advertisements for Levi's 501 jeans in the mid-1980's. The story goes that she wore jeans after failing to attract his attention in dresses. As was to happen with the other adverts' soundtracks, to coincide with this advertisement, Eddie's single, "Come on Everybody" was re-released.

She was the girlfriend of Eddie Cochran, riding with him in the taxi that crashed April 16, 1960, near Bath, England. The crash injured her (breaking her pelvis). It killed Cochran.
