The musical career of rock and roll pioneer Buddy Holly is chronicled, from the days when "Peggy Sue" was "Cindy Lou", a song about his first girlfriend, to the meteoric run of "That'll Be the Day" up the charts, to his marriage, breakup with the Crickets, reunion with the Crickets, and untimely death.

Buddy Holly and The Crickets did not perform Maybe Baby on "The Ed Sullivan Show". In their 2 appearances on the show, they performed That'll Be The Day and Peggy Sue on 12/1/57 and then Oh Boy on 12/26/58. Maybe Baby was not released until 2/28/58. However, Holly is seen rehearsing "Peggy Sue" before the show, which could be a reference to the original show or just a coincidence. See more »

Riley wants to hear you at the mike - that's the one right there; say somethin' into that mike.

Caption shown at end of film: "Buddy Holly died later that night along with JP 'The Big Bopper' Richardson and Ritchie Valens in the crash of a private airplane just outside of Clearlake... and the rest is rock 'n' roll!" See more »
A fine film about the late great Buddy Holly. Watch it for no other reason than to see the scene where Buddy sings "True Love Weighs." Gary Busey did his own singing and that particular scene is fantastic. Overlook the various minor inaccuracies in this picture.
