Some of Buddy Holly

Some of Buddy Holly: The opening verse, first line of the Ian Dury song Reason's To Be Cheerful, Part 3, I'll be running through a pictorial representation of the whole song lyrics in the next 50 odd posts. 

So here indeed is a bit of Charles Hardin Holley, who went by the name Buddy. Music that inspired generations of followers is indeed something to be cheerful about.
Buddy Holly died at 22 years old, amazing given his legacy and lasting popularity. He styled himself and his band heavily on Bo Diddley and recorded a great version of Bo Diddley's self titled song.
