An Informative Bio-Documentary All About Rock'n'Roll Legend, Buddy Holly (1936-1959)

Originally broadcast for TV viewing back in 1987 - This 86-minute "Buddy Holly" bio-documentary gives the inquisitive viewer a fairly well-rounded overview of the short life and brief musical career of American pop star, Buddy Holly.

Born (1936) in Lubbock, Texas - Buddy Holly (birth name - Charles Hardin Holley) is considered to be a major pioneering figure in the evolution of mid-1950s rock'n'roll.

It is well-known that modern-day pop icons such as Elton John, Mick Jagger, and John Lennon (to name but a few) all claim that Holly was a significant influence on the direction that their early songwriting took.

*Note* - In 1959 - Buddy Holly (22 at the time) was killed (as a passenger) in a single-engine plane crash.
