    Okay....BREAKOUT....

    Buddy has been a main topic tonight. But Buddy, Ritchie, Jaypee....had they lived....would have made more music....but would also have enjoyed so much of what has come along since then....

    Just good music. Any and all.

    Roy Orbison....

    Crying written by Don McLean who wrote American Pie about the Day the Music Died....

    and yet it goes on and on.....

    Thanks for the history lesson. I remember the Linda Ronstadt version but didn't know It's so easy was a Buddy Holly song.

    You're welcome. :D

    That's the thing....Good music is good music....one thing builds on another....

    I like Linda Ronstadt. Her albums with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra are classic.

    And while I'm thinking about it, Linda Ronstadt had some really good musicians behind her on some of her songs.....like some of the guys who later became The Eagles.....

    Dang time goes by so fast.....

    Following the crash, tour operators needed an act to complete the tour. A Fargo, N.D., garage band led by 15-year-old Robert Velline filled in. Afterward, Velline briefly hired a 19-year-old piano player who called himself Elston Gunnn. Gunnn, real name Robert Zimmerman, later said of an encounter with Holly, "When I was 16 or 17 I went to see Buddy Holly play at Duluth [Minn.] National Guard Armory and I was 3 feet away from him and he looked at me." Within two years he relocated to New York, changed his name again and became Bob Dylan. (Velline became Bobby Vee, with hits such as "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" and "Take Good Care of My Baby.")

    In New Jersey, a a young boy who listened to Buddy on his transistor radio remembered seeing him play guitar on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Fifteen years later, the young man became a rock superstar recording his own material. Sunday's Super Bowl halftime act was that boy—Bruce Springsteen.

    Holly's influence in England was even more profound. Two Liverpool teenagers with a nascent rock group got ahold of his records and studied his chords and songwriting. One even lost his self-consciousness about wearing glasses onstage. After the crash, John Lennon changed the group's name from Johnny and the Moondogs to the Beatles (after Holly's backup group, the Crickets). Years later, Beatle Paul McCartney bought the entire Holly songbook and hosts Buddy Holly tributes.

    Around the same time, two English teenagers formed a group in London based on their love of American blues and rock. For two years they had middling success in England as an opening act for American artists—until they decided to record a Holly cover, "Not Fade Away." Infused with a Bo Diddley beat, it shot to No. 3 in Britain and became their first song to appear on the American charts. Thereafter, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the Rolling Stones were poised to become "The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band."

    That's pretty cool when Dylan, Springsteen, The Beatles and The Stones idolize you.
