Buddy Holly

I wanted to find a video of Buddy singing "Not Fade Away," but there does not seem to be one, at least not on Youtube (just a video that shows the record playing). So here's "Peggy Sue" on American Bandstand.

So (hat tip to Marc Krebs) Buddy died fifty years ago today. "February made me shiver ..."

I still find it hard to believe how incredibly brief his career was, considering the legacy he left behind. Listening to him always reminds me of long car journeys when I was a kid - my dad would play Buddy Holly, Elvis and Johnny Cash on continuous rotation (with an occasional foray into Sinatra).
