Just watched Buddy Holly-Rave On on bbc4 and reminded that on February 3 is 60th anniversary of his untimely passing.
60 years, wow! can it really be so long? “Who knows where the time goes?”
Just so interesting that his music still transcends time and musical fashion.
I still cherish several L.Ps including Chirping Crickets & The Buddy Holly Story.
So many brilliant songs created in such a short career

Bradfordian

Slightly before my time as it was just before my 6th birthday but I came to appreciate his music in later life. It is indeed timeless and defies categorisation. Genius can be an overused term but very apt for Buddy.

For beginners or very young folks, Fil Henley from Wings of Pegasus does a nice summary of how we wouldn't have had the Beatles most likely or "rock bands" in general without Buddy Holly in this video:

British Guitarist Reacts to Buddy Holly

Fil has done a number of great videos on Country Legends and even Folkies. Check him out. He's very enthusiastic and open to suggestion. Not merely a metal dude. I know he's sticking to the most basic info here but a lot of his viewers are quite young.

There is also a more in depth video done by Dion about The Winter Dance Party Tour which led to the fatal plane crash. Dion was ON that tour and he tries to set some things straight:

I can remember exactly where I was when I heard he had died in that plane crash . First bed on the right from the corridor door to the A Squadron band billet at No 1 Radio School R A F Locking in February 1969 .

Gee, he was only 22 when he died in that plane crash in 1959. He certainly made a name for himself in that short lifetime.

Sadly, if you want to live forever, die young.
Long live Buddy Holly.

I knew someone who was at his Croydon gig in March 1958, who always complains how loud he was - I wonder, house PA 30 watts at most, hired guitar amps 15 watts perhaps, not very loud I should think!

I was only a few months old when he died...

But when I was in my final degree year around 1984,
while I was writing my dissertation and preparing for my finals,
I coped with one of my 2 steady girlfriends chucking me
by moping in my attic bedsit huddled under my desk
listening endlessly to a Buddy Holly cassette...

"Learning the Game" probably featured prominently on that tape...

Buddy Holly was the first musician I saw playing a Fender Strat.. I've loved the man, his music & that guitar ever since.

A version of the "Crickets" came to the Café Dansant, Cleethorpes in about 1964. As I recall it was Jerry Allison on drums. What I remember clearly is that the singer resembled Buddy Holly!. I still play Buddy Holly tracks and always will, marvellous stuff.

punkfolkrocker - When I was much younger and had finished with or been dumped by someone I always felt much better after I had listened to
'It Doesn't Matter Anymore'

'Well, you go your way, and
I'll go mine,
Now and for ever till the
End of time
I'll find somebody new
Baby, we'll say we're through
And you won't matter anymore.'

Topsie - that was quite likely on the cassette as well...

After I graduated, I blew at a least whole week's Sup Benefit money on the big Buddy Holly Complete 6 [?] LP boxset...
Which was probably more than 30 quid in the mid 80s..
I was skinny and undernourished anyway, so what hardship was a week living off dried pulses and bread...
Done it plenty of times before that..

I was obsessed with Buddy Holly's music,
and finding a couple of rare tracks that I'd heard at at a party at an older woman's house...

I've got the full 6 LP boxed set on RCA-Coral I bought it from a guy in a Pub who was skint and looking for some drinking money, I paid him £4 for them, brilliant set.

Actually, It Doesn’t Matter Any More was written by Paul Anka, but as the song says I guess it doesn’t matter any more. I’ve always loved the circle of fifths chord progression in the bridge in Everyday.

That bridge progression is a classic. You'll also find it - with slight twists - in the bridge section of Benny Goodman's "Stomping At The Savoy."

What goes around, etc...

I was very lucky to see Buddy at the ABC Regal cinema in Hull - I stiil have the programme.

When a fellow apprentice at work told me Buddy was dead and laughed I nearly belted him!

A number of years later I saw the Beatles at the same venue and other notable visitors to Hull included the Stones, Cliff Bennett and the Rabble Rousers and that great entertainer Jerry Lee Lewis.

My long ago next door neighbour saw Eddie Cochran at his last ever gig...

Until he told us that I never thought the bloke had a single cool bone in his body
[He worked making Trifles in a factory].

From then on me and my 1970s Teddy Boy revivalist mate regarded him with respect and envy...
