Its amazing that 60 years ago today, Buddy Holly(Holley) died along with The Big Bopper, Richie Valens, and the Pilot.

I wasn't even born yet, but his presence is still felt throughout the world.

I asked my daughter who is attending Texas Tech to visit his gravesite today, something I never did when I attended Tech close to 40 years ago. She said she would, so I'm hoping she follows through.

God rest Buddy's, and the rest of their souls.

Regards, Craig

I cried because I had no shoes, then I met a man who had no feet.

My mother really liked when I played his records. She's gone also. Thanks for the reminder, Graig.

I also enjoyed them. It was what was on the radio, and yes, it had a new sound.
He's well thought of here (oops, I'm not there anymore). I moved a desk out of his jr. hi. Buddy Holly scratched into it. He was thought well of even then.

Very thoughtful of your daughter to mark the day.

Last April I went out to a small town in Iowa to buy an old Corvette. Come to find out it was only a mile or so from where the plane went down. Sad but interesting to see and understand the location.
Many play better than I do. Nobody has more fun.
