Product description

Review

"Buddy Holly and The Crickets had an electrifying effect on us as young
lads in Liverpool. We were inspired to learn guitar by seeing him on
television and listening to his records. That'll Be The Day blew our
minds and Lord knows how long we took trying to learn the opening riff.
His guitar and vocal style was massively influential on us as writers
and players and things would definitely not have been the same without
his huge talent. Love ya' Buddy!

P.S. The name of his band The Crickets also influenced our choice of
band name so those boys have a lot to answer for!" -- Paul McCartney
