Subject: RE: Origins: The Day the Music Died
surprised I missed this thread...
must have been during one of my failed self imposed exiles from mudcat ???

Buddy and Eddie are crucial strands of my musical DNA.

When I was a post grad student back in the 80s
I stupidly blew a weeks living money on the Buddy Holly 'Complete' LP Boxset..

[In latter years some kindly international group of bootleggers
have produced a genuinely near complete 'CD quality' download collection...
thank you "Purple Chick"...]

.. and I'm sure I remember my old next door neighbour saying how he was in the audience
for Eddie's final gig in Bristol....

Eddie's songs were some of the first our band ever learned to play
when we were 15.
