I'll keep this simple. Any fans?

http://buddyholly.com/bh/index.html I'll convert you. :)

If you need a picture, find it yourself. Just look for the guy with thick glasses.

Isn't he that guy that totally ripped off Rivers Cuomo's style?

That depends, I'm not familiar with this Rivers Cuomo. Buddy was 50s, and very original. Holly was unique, his legendary status and his impact on popular music was all the more extraordinary for having been achieved in barely 18 months. He's definitely one of the founding fathers and legends of '50s rock & roll.

I can't see Buddy ripping off anybody. Most of his songs were his own, not to mention - one was even written by his mother.

EDIT: You're way off man, Rivers Cuomo... the lead singer to Weezer! That song Buddy Holly... no, hell no.

I grew up listening to Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, etc.
My parents were about ten years older than all of my friends' parents, and were listening mainly to easy listening, but they did have old albums from the late 1950's and early 1960's. And, when we'd go on trips, we'd always have plenty of tapes of music from this era.
Buddy Holly fucking rocks. My favorite though, would have to be Jerry Lee Lewis. Um, sorry fellas, act as crazy as you want with your "rock-n-roll" lifestyle...but the Killer done did it all...from behind a piano. :icon_surp

I always like it if someone likes old music. I still love Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell,... etc etc. :)

So that's what wink means. ;)

Ah, yes. My two favorite legends... how kind of you to post their mugs.

Anybody who says Buddy Holly fucking rocks, is ok in my book. I love Roy Orbison, nobody knows how it is to be that lonely. :)

Very true on Jerry Lee Lewis, I'm an avid fan of the killer myself.

Buddy Holly? Yeah, that's a great song. Weezer's best in my opinion.

No, unfortunetly I haven't. But I sure hope the townspeople of Lubbock knew what they had (or out of respect... still has.)

Has anyone seen The Buddy Holly Story, starring Gary Busey?

Yes, I have seen The Buddy Holly Story. Good movie. Probably the most true to life biopic of any of the stars of that era.

Seventhson;
Johnny Rivers fan?

If we're going to discuss older music....why not discuss when it was really good? :confused:

What do you mean? It's always good. :confused:

What's wrong, you don't like Buddy?

I dont...

I'm not saying he's a bad artist or anything. I'm just a young punk that many say has a bad taste in music.

I like Punk rock. My favorite bands consist of: NOFX, Against All Authority, Cursive, The getup kids, and Alkaline Trio.

I also like most classic punk from the 70's.

Well, no, I don't. The generation after Buddy Holly's is by far the best we've seen. It's like Buddy Holly on steriods. :icon_idea I'll do a picture show to explain.

Well, there's no denial that The Beatles kick major ass. I'll give you that. Bob Dylan is good, I'll agree to that too. But Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Clash, and The Who are bands I'm not too familar with... I don't think they're bad anything, I've just never found time to listen to them.

I guess you do have a point with those bands being like Buddy Holly on steriods, he was quite the geek in his day, the underdog if you will... that's why I've always rooted for him. Buddy Holly's death signaled the end of an era, to which it was revamped with the likes of The Fab Four, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Four Seasons, The Righteous Brothers, and such... so I guess it was only necessary for Buddy to disappear under the public eye. Though he will never fade away.

Steppenwolf, Three Dog Night, Blood Sweat & Tears... let's talk about those bands. :) No you don't have too.

I love Everyday. I had no idea it was on the Big Fish soundtrack, must see it now. :)

You hate British people, don't you? Only kidding. You're really missing out if you haven't listened to those bands. LZ IV, Wish You Were Here, London Callin', and Who's Next are probably some of the best albums created. Besides Revolver, I'd take Led Zeppelin IV over any Beatles album.

No, I still long to be british.

If I had access to those bands, then sure. What's the harm in listening right? It's a shame really, I usually just listen to the same shit everday... it's 50s and 60s day in and day out. Though I wouldn't go as far as to say to myself I have poor taste in music, I just haven't really explored the era's too well. Most of the time, I want go any further than the 70s... luckily Zeppelin makes it.

Anyways, I'll keep in mind about what you said. There's never a time someone recommends something to me, that I haven't followed through on.

Wow, another thread dredged up by a guest.
Jakester...one cannot discuss the artists in them pictures without discussing the profound influence the likes of Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, etc. had on groups like the Beatles. Hell, the Beatles covered most of these guys, and their first few albums borrowed their sound as well. There would never have been a British Invasion had it not been for the great American artists of the late 1950s and early 1960s. They paved the way, and did it with some kick ass music, to boot.
Credit must be given, where credit is due.

You can't talk about my musical postings from two years ago. I was, musically, a different person.

I do still like the bands I posted about, but damn how things have changed. And yeah, I realize how those bands were influenced by 50's. A lot of modern bands are heavily influnced by the 50's chord progression and sound. Apples in Stereo, for example.

Edit: Shit, THREE years ago. I wasn't even a senior in highschool yet. Oh lordy how my views have changed. And what's funny about that is when I made those original posts I hardly listened to those bands save the Beatles. I just wanted to seem cool on teh intranets.
