The Miracles and more finally are added to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
The Monkees received plenty of support for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
Paul Anka and Bobby Vee both were just 15 when stardom beckoned, and both went on to have long and productive careers
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted Buddy Holly and Bill Haley in its first couple years, but what about The Crickets and The Comets?
Growing up in New Jersey during the 1960s and 1970s, Pat DiNizio was familiar with Holly through the New York radio stations that aired his hits as well as The Beatles’ faithful rendition of Holly’s “Words of Love.”
If not for Charles Hardin Holley, known the world over as Buddy Holly, rock ’n’ roll certainly would be very different. If not for Holly’s work, with and without The Crickets, the lives of many people would be very different, too. Fifty years after the legend’s untimely death, the first of five such individuals — Jerry Allison — share their Holly-related experiences and memories.
