Buddy Holly Tribute – Graham Holly
Charles Hardin Holley (September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959), known as Buddy Holly, was an American musician and singer-songwriter who was a central figure of mid-1950s rock and roll.
He was born in Lubbock, Texas, to a musical family during the Great Depression and learned to play guitar and sing alongside his siblings.
His style was influenced by gospel music, country music, and rhythm and blues acts and he performed in Lubbock with his friends from high school.
He made his first appearance on local television in 1952 and the following year he formed the group “Buddy and Bob” with his friend Bob Montgomery.
In 1955, after opening for Elvis Presley, he decided to pursue a career in music.
He opened for Presley three times that year; his band’s style shifted from country and western to entirely rock and roll. In October that year, when he opened for Bill Haley & His Comets, he was spotted by Nashville scout Eddie Crandall, who helped him get a contract with Decca Records.(Wikipedia)
