Buddy actually came along very early in the game and hit it big or bigger than some of the other acts that wrote their own songs. Carl Perkins had one big hit and the same for Bo Diddley. Roy Orbison really didn't really become a household name until the 60s and Eddie Cochran's first and only top 10 came a year or so after That'll Be The Day hit and Eddie's first solo release happened a couple of months after Blue Days, Black Nights was released.

Yes. Buddy did covers, but so did every other artist and he did write a lot of his own material, but not all of it. Buddy also released his first song in 1956, not long after the rock and roll era had started, so yes, he was one of the first who wrote his own material. Remember that Chuck Berry's first hit was a rewrite of Ida Red (a western swing song) in 1955 and Buddy came out with the original That'll Be The Day in 1956. Little Richard just had a hit or two by the time Buddy came along. Just because many songs were not hit, does not disqualify him and remember, some of the non-charted songs like Not Fade Away, It's So Easy and Everyday are now standards that people love as much as Peggy Sue and That'll Be The Day. I think it is safe to say that he was one of the first major stars to write his own material.
