If you want to get a feel for Buddy Holly, Gary Busey does it well, good story line. quality of film good. If you've never seen it, then you won't know pop music. Songs that stood the test of time.

Having seen the great man on stage in 1958, and the stage show in London in the late 1990's it seemed natural to have the DVD of his short and productive life. I have seen the film on TV previously so obviously knew what to expect, but for a lifelong fan, along with many others such as Paul McCartney, Keith Richard etc. it is a film that I can watch time after time without becoming bored. His music is still played today and stands the test of time alongside other greats, and one wonders how far he would have progressed if only the fateful day in 1959 had not occurred. One of the all time heroes of rock and roll, and ballads, who will never be surpassed. Gary Busey obviously doesn't quite match up to the voice of the original Buddy but the film is still very enjoyable and includes some funny moments and some extremely poignant ones. For fans such as me, the ending still invokes a lump in the throat, as we all remember where we were when the news came that he had died in a plane crash. Obviously, I was still at school, and that same feeling was experienced by Graham Nash, as he reminisced in the TV programme on Buddy's life on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of his death in 1959.
Buy it and enjoy it.

Excellent film, great attention to period detail and a brilliant portrayal by Gary Busey and the other members of the cast.

This is one of the best musical biopics ever. Gary Busey was brilliant. The singing and performing were real and authentic
