The real Buddy Holly story

Postby Hugh-AR » 04 Apr 2018 10:52

One or two Buddy Holly numbers have gone up recently. Brian has played "It Doesn't Matter Any More":

I was 16yr at the time Buddy Holly was around and his music had a great influence on me. I knew he had been killed in an aeroplane crash, but apart from that didn't really know very much about him. I have come across this series of videos about Buddy Holly's life, which I am finding fascinating to watch. Didn't know the half of it! The introduction is done by Paul McCartney. Don't try and watch them all at one sitting!

A man that was way ahead of his time and unfortunately had such a short tragic career
I have watched a few documentaries on the TV and he like a lot more was ripped off
by managers and record companies, such a shame

Usually when I want to play something I listen to it first on YouTube to get an idea of what STYLE to use from the many I have available to me. But then it's also a good idea to see if anybody else has tackled the piece on their keyboard, as that will be an 'instrumental' version of the song (usually .. although occasionally the 'player' sings as well!). So as I am in 'Buddy Holly mood' I thought I would have a listen to a few of his songs. Brian has done a list for me of the songs Buddy Holly sang, and below that I have put some LINKS to some 'performances' by Members.

"That'll Be The Day"
"I'm Looking For Someone To Love"
"Words Of Love"
"Not Fade Away"
"Everyday"
"Oh, Boy!"
"Peggy Sue"
"I'm Gonna Love You Too"
"Maybe Baby"
"Rave On!"
"Think It Over"
"Fool's Paradise"
"Early In The Morning"
"It's So Easy"
"Heartbeat"
"True Love Ways"
"It Doesn't Matter Anymore"
"Raining in My Heart"
