Buddy Holly (1936-1959), a legend of early rock 'n' roll, wrote his own material. He was among the first to use such advanced studio techniques as double-tracking, and popularized the now-standard rock band lineup of two guitars, bass and drums. A lengthy roster of rock greats, including Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and the Beatles, cite Holly as a major influence, and he did much to built a bridge between white and black music and musicians. His first song recorded with the Crickets in 1957 was "That'll be the Day". "Peggy Sue" followed. In the year between August 1957 and August 1958, Buddy Holly and the Crickets had seven "Top 40" hits. On February 3, 1959, while on the Winter Dance Party tour of the Midwest, Holly died in a fatal plane crash along with J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper) and Ritchie Valens. This tragic loss is remembered in Don McLean's song "American Pie" as "the day the music died". The Crickets backed up Buddy Holly on many of his early recordings. Originally three in number, two Crickets, drummer Jerry Allison and bassist Joe B. Mauldin, can be heard on many Holly recordings, and were planning to rejoin him after the winter tour. The Crickets have continued to record and perform, with various lead singers, and themselves entered the Musicians' Hall of Fame in 2008. Frame lightly chipped. Fine condition. Not framed in the Gallery of History style.
