Knockouts from the past

Band: Buddy Holly And The Crickets
Song: That’ll Be The Day
Score: The single hit the top spot of the US Singles Chart
62 years ago today, on 27 October 1957

as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. Especially John Lennon was a dedicated fan of the unfortunate rocker who died in an airplane crash, only 22. After Lennon and McCartney saw Holly playing for the first time they met and started studying his records, his performance style and lyricism. It’s no coincidence that ‘The Beatles‘ was derived from an insect name because Holly‘s band was named ‘The Crickets

Here’s the classic…
