Buddy Holly

In a career lasting barely 18 months, Texas-born Buddy Holly became the most influential figure in early rock and roll.

Holly was one of the first great singer-songwriters - he wrote his own material and in the end was producing it, too. His innovation and craftsmanship heralded the new wave of rock and rollers in the Sixties, influencing the likes of the Beatles, the Hollies and the Rolling Stones.

We control the majority of his catalogue, including the hits Everyday, True Love Ways, That'll Be The Day, Peggy Sue and Not Fade Away.
