The year is 1959. Here is a bit of the crazy, playful side of Buddy Holly. In these images, Buddy mugs for a photo booth camera in Grand Central Station, New York City. He would never know of the tremendous impact his music would have on future generations of singers and musicians. See, Buddy had only 10 more days to live. Fifty-five years ago today, February 3, 1959 – Buddy, Ritchie Valens, and JP “The Big Bopper” Richardson died in the crash of a Beechcraft Bonanza airplane only a couple of hours after entertaining thousands of teens at Clear Lake, Iowa’s Surf Ballroom, during the “Winter Dance Party” tour. It’s known as “The Day The Music Died”. But, I’d rather remember Buddy this way – as the young Texas Rock ‘n’ Roller who changed the course of pop music.
