Subject: On This Day in 1958....and 2008.

On this day in 1958, Buddy Holly and The Crickets would make their final public appearance together, appearing on Dick Clark's American Bandstand. After the show was over, Buddy Holly and The Crickets as the world had known them, were no more. Buddy and Maria Elena went one way, while Jerry Allison and Joe B. Mauldin went in another direction, literally and figuratively.

Little did they know that it would be forever…

Less than 100 days later, tragedy would strike, in the form of a plane crash and Buddy Holly was gone. The plane crash killed four people, four promising careers, and left millions of fans to forever wonder what might have been.

In 2008, 50 years to the day of that last appearance, The Crickets would be inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center in downtown Nashville was filled to the brim with family, friends, and fans of the inductees. Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers would be their presenter and artists Keith Richards, Duane Eddy, and Kid Rock would be in attendance. It was simply a magical evening.

For those who love the music of Buddy Holly and The Crickets, I believe that Sonny Curtis of The Crickets said it and sang it best—“and you know the levee ain’t dry, and the music didn’t die, ‘cause Buddy Holly lives every time we play rock-n-roll.”
