Overview

Buddy Holly lived a short life, killed at the age of 22 while touring in the mid-west in the middle of a freezing winter in 1959. That day is called "The Day the Music Died", but the music never really died. Buddy Holly has had more of an influence on Rock and Roll that most from that time era. And, it's amazing just how revered he is since he only had seven hit songs and his entire catalog is not that big.

The Beatles look to Buddy as the person who had the most influence on them when they were starting out. The Rolling Stones recorded his music. Bob Dylan attended a Buddy Holly concert and came away a changed man.

Buddy Holly is surely one of the greats of Rock and Roll and deserves to be called a legend. In this e-book, I don't try to analyze every little fact of his life, but instead look at his life as a whole and how his life affected his music and the music of those who listened to him.
