Buddy Holly – Gary

There is so little available on Buddy, but I found some rare footage here:

If I remember correctly, Buddy met Elvis in Texas when Elvis was singing there.  Elvis was on fire but Buddy was still struggling at the time.  He did not sing with him, just met him after one of Elvis’s shows.

There is so little film of Buddy that this is really a great find.  There is lots on Chuck, he is still alive, but Buddy, truly one of my all time favourites (my favourite Buddy song was not a big hit, Well Alright.

I hope that you watched that Rock the Early Days, great videos there.  It was very true that the early Rockers where the ones who paid the big price and then after the death of Buddy, the industry had it’s squeaky clean Fabians’, Bobby Rydell’s, Frankie Avalons but the first wave was short and was gone.

The absolute great part of this is, YOU & I where there and lived through it.  This will NEVER happen again, yes and we where there.
