Greetings HWW:... You are exactly right about the good music dying. I was raised up and lived in Lubbock, Texas, the home place of Buddy Holly. My sister used to date J.I Allison, the drummer for the Crickets, and I went to Buddy’s house when they would practice. I was about 10 years old then… but I remember. They’ve got a Buddy Holly museum, statue, street named after him, a park, etc. etc. Lubbock remembers Buddy…..
Also… I remember a letter that Buddy got from the Beatles (in a pics frame) asking him how they could get started in the business.

Though I was born in the middle 60’s, I grew up with mom and dad listening to this kind of music, and really enjoy it to this day…nostalgia I guess. I ran across the anniversary mention in a news article and enjoyed the article on wikipedia that I included in the original post. Very informative, and thought I would share it on my favorite website, LJ’s

Rick…..I was in Lubbock a couple of years ago while taking my daughter to a softball camp, and remember driving past the museum, though time did not allow us to stop and enjoy it. It is facinating the entertainers names that can be tied to him The Beatles, Waylon Jennings, etc
