It's unfathomable to me that he had written so many incredible songs before he died at age 22, and that i'm now 28 and if i see a number like 798465651919 written on the internet i'll skip past it because i'm too lazy to read it.
Hello I would like to share a story that I loved hearing from my grandfather when he grew up in Lubbock. Not only is the story interesting I feel its important to musics history. My grandpa was born in Lubbock and is about a year older than Buddy. In the 1950s my grandpa was driving his truck and the way he describes it is Buddy pulled beside him while riding on a motorcycle and held onto my grandpas mirror or side of the truck. While they were driving, my grandpa said he almost killed himself and Buddy. I can't imagine a world without Buddy Holly's music and the countless musicians he's inspired. Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, The Beatles and so so many more. To the day my grandfather died he never really liked Buddy but never hated him. Rest easy Paw. Love you 1935-2018.
