He made several hits but one of my favourites was called Heartbeat.
John Lennon often wore Buddy Holly style glasses but when it was suggested to him that he was copying his hero just a wee bit too much he stopped wearing them. This was rather unfortunate as John was short sighted so he was forever tripping over wires and speakers on stage. As John was such a clown people just thought it was all part of the act. Paul was a great fan too and this was reflected in their early works.

Sadly, in 1959, Buddy Holly was on Tour in America when he was involved in a plane crash and lost his life, along with two other pop stars, The Big Bopper and Ricky Valance.
A sad day for the Pop World.
Buddy Holly's adoring fans, worldwide were Heartbroken. Paul McCartney was a great fan too an he and John featured 'Words of Love', (written and recorded by Buddy), on one of their L.P's.
On the 19th of this month I celebrated my 70th birthday and it was such a Happy time for all the family. Our three lovely daughters arranged it at Ingrid's (second daughter's) home.
