Sue (in Arizona) I'm curious about your opinion of the Buddy hologram. Are you one of the commenters here who saw the real Buddy & Crickets on tour? If not, then I have you mixed up with a different commenter.

My own thoughts: When I saw the first demo on youtube, I was unimpressed. But since then, I've watched some clips that audience members have uploaded to youtube, and my opinion has changed. I don't know if he's an imitator, or a digital composite, but I find the hologram as close to the original as I've ever seen. Certainly closer than tribute artists who look and sound nothing like him, or stars of the traveling "Buddy Holly Story" stage production, who also look and sound nothing like him. (John Mueller is the only exception I can think of.)

I was impressed that they used a small rock band, rather than a full orchestra. I like particularly how they performed the song "Well Alright" - Buddy's original vocals with new accompanying electric guitars.

I know the hologram isn't an exact likeness, but if it's an actor (with no digital enhancement) I wouldn't mind seeing him portray Holly in a new biopic, if a decent and accurate reboot ever gets made.

I'm curious what your thoughts are.

Here's a clip (shot by an audience member) of the show. "Well Alright" starts around the 5:28 mark.
