Buddy Holly tribute by Paul McCartney
27 July 2002 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

A labor of love by former Beatle Paul McCartney who, after seeing "The Buddy Holly Story" with Gary Busey, determined to find out about the real Buddy Holly. Paul took his film crew and sought out the people Buddy Holly knew and the places he frequented, including the venues around Lubbock, TX where Buddy made his first musical excursions, continuing on to Clovis, NM where most of Buddy's records were made at Petty Studios, and the New York and Los Angeles sites where the rest of his records were cut. Along the way, Buddy's friends and family give their candid comments about the life and times of Buddy Holly. Interviewees include Buddy's brothers, Mrs. Norman Petty, widow of his first manager, Buddy's band the Crickets, record executives, and several rock stars like Keith Richards and Don and Phil Everly. The result is a very good documentary that sheds more light on Buddy Holly than most other rock 'n' roll legends. Very worthwhile viewing!
