The fiftieth year of the tragic ending to a short career in a cornfield in Iowa is being acknowledged worldwide on February 3, 2009.

We recently watched the DVD "The Buddy Holley Story" and then proceeded to read everything we could find on the subject of Buddy Holley and of the Crickets. The movie was excellent; the acting and music and photography kept us settled on the couch for the entire viewing. No potty breaks either.

I would like to pay tribute to the young man who believed in the music he heard and wanted to share with the world. Unfortunately, the plane crash ended that dream and changed music forever. Thank you, Buddy, for believing in those sounds and putting them to music.

Uhmn, I must admit, as the "square" I was at the time, I did not appreciate Buddy -- I thought him affected.

It was first after twenty years that I could appreciate the unique soul of the work he did with the Crickets
