More than 50 years ago but one of the pioneers of rock and roll. Buddy Holly is often quoted as a major influence by many top guitarists.

Hope you enjoy smile.gif

Yeah, he was really influential, one of the first rock players that also sang. He did some great songs as well, but I guess he was owershadowed by Elvis, since people got totally mad about Elvis in 57-58.
Definitely a milestone and a worthy entry in our WIKI !!! biggrin.gif

Yeah, he also died, but I meant the guy who was supposed to be on the flight, but took the bus instead. (remember it from the movie "La Bamba") I googled it now, and it was actually Waylon Jennings.... He switched his place in the plane with Richardson (Big Bopper) cause Richardson's got a cold and had problems to fit his body into a bus....

The last word the guy's said to each other was: Holly: "Well, I hope your old bus freezes up" , while Jennings replied: "Well, I hope your plane crashes." Jennings had nigthmares for years for this comment, even that was said as a joke from both parts....
