Default Re: 50 Years Ago Today

Don called Buddy a genius. That was pretty obvious.

I recommend people watch Gary Busey's oscar nominated performance in "The Buddy Holly story." It shows not only genius, but the prudish, bible-belt (and racist) barriers he had to overcome in the 50's to get his music heard. He was a genius, a pioneer and we could only speculate what could have been had he survived.
