Waesuck Wednesday: Buddy Holly Edition

Today would be Buddy Holly's 75th birthday had the genius rocker not plunged to his death in a plane crash at age 22. He's been ranked as one of the greatest artists of all time and was one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Buddy was one of the singers that my mother and I would listen to when I was little, and so it's often her voice I hear singing along when I'm rocking the "Best of" collection in my car.

The Buddy Holly Center

First Listen: "Rave On"
