Buddy Holly & The Crickets. The first true legendary band in rock history, in my opinion. Tragically taken away from us far too early. Holly and his band inspired so many of the next generation of rock legends including The Beatles, who named their own band in honor of the Crickets.
Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings. “Buddy was the first person to have faith in my music. He encouraged me in my music and my writing. He was my friend. If anything I’ve ever done is remembered, part of it is because of Buddy Holly.” - Waylon Jennings
