Buddy Holly Did Not Die Today




...nor was Buddy Holly born today.

Is that a reason not to listen to Buddy Holly?

No, I didn't think so.

there is never a reason not to listen to buddy holly.

unless you've do-wopped out on chuck berry.

Hear, hear!

I couldn't agree more.

Not even over do-wopping on Chuck Berry is an excuse.

I concur with Fish.

I just bought my son a Chuck Berry best-of collection I saw at Costco-- I saw he'd downloaded a couple of Chuck Berry songs recently. My son loves oldies.

Of course, I'll have to borrow it to put on my itunes...

My favorite aunt lives in Clear Lake, Iowa. Just sayin'.

I almost purchased a Buddy Holly CD today, what a weird coincidence.

I decided to hold out for a better selection of tracks, the lousy store I was in only had a single CD by him, and I'm sure I could find a better offer elsewhere (Hello, Amazon).

JY, It's weird, I'm going crazy with the 50's music lately, mostly due to that "Ain't Got No Home" song.

mob, I got by with "From The Original Master Tapes" for many happy years.

CP, have you ever been to the Surf Ballroom?

Coaster Punchman said...

No, is that in Clear Lake? Is it a place where someone would have a wedding reception? Cause I've been to at least one wedding there.

Splotchy said...

It looks like they do offer their venue for weddings, so I wouldn't be surprised if you were there at some point.

It's the last place Buddy Holly played before the crash.
