Nice story, Mark. Thanks for passing it on.

This, one of a series of “The Biggest Show of Stars of 1957” were arena (as in “hockey”) shows so it is hard to believe Buddy could have filled a cavernous hardscape such as this with one 12-inch speaker, but it does serve to create a mythical tale for one starry-eyed, 14yo developing musician.

I’m also grateful for the laudatory benefits it provides the enduring Buddy Holly legend. I’m not surprised Robertson used this anecdote in his memoir, even if it is embellished.

One aspect, definitely incorrect, though, is that Holly and the Crickets were the headliners—there were none in a very, very long list of key performers of the times.
