Buddy Holly was killed at 22 when the plane he was travelling in crashed on 3 February 1959. His lasting influence is clear; a musical based on his life seems set to run for longer than his lifetime and artists as diverse as Blink 182 and Bob Dylan call him an inspiration. This title offers detailed account of every Holly recording session.
