Buddy achieved so much in his short time (22 years) on this earth. He was a brilliant composer and musician, and heaven only knows what he would have achieved had he lived..

I like the street twiddleage, very apt
Bill Phillips: He was ahead of his time in many ways and would undoubtedly gone on to become one of the greats

like old postcards - I love this image, excellently twiddled! I recall Sunlight/Sunlicht soap in my childhood days - a sign of western glory!
Bill Phillips: Port Sunlight is worth a visit Philine. An example of an enlightened employer

I remember it like it was yesterday. I was a fan of Buddy Holly and at 17 years old me and my sister bought his records between us. I’v still got all is songs. The day the music dead.... And coming from Manchester, it seemed that every thing we held dear was being destroyed 12 months earlier on the 6 of February 1958 the plane carrying the United team crashed killing most of them. They may all be gone now. But they will never be forgotten all of them. thank's for the memories Bill.
Bill Phillips: I was only 9 when he died but I had a friend with an older brother and got to know about his music through him and have loved it ever since. My Brother was a Man U fan and had an annual with a team photograph on which he marked those who had died.

My brother still mourns their loss. They were slightly too early to be my music.
Bill Phillips: I had a friend with an older brother so I got to know about Buddy Holly about a year after he died. I have loved his music ever since
Postcard perfect. The radio was been featuring BH and BB's music this morning.
Bill Phillips: Hard to believe it was 60 years ago
I was 14, coming up 15, when the sad event happened and I'd just got into buying records and I really enjoyed listening to Buddy, I now have all his songs on CD's. and in the couple of times I've done a cabaret spot in the past I've always sung my favourite of his, True Love Ways.
Bill Phillips: Not an easy song to sing but an indication of his developing talent as a songwriter.
The Day The Music Died

A nice gloomy image to go along with this memoriam.
Bill Phillips: He was a great influence on many who followed
