*** During the period (1959-1963) 99% of Americans forgot all about Holly and it was only countries such as Britain, Australia, New Zealand and some European places his music was still played. ***

I think saying "99% of Americans forgot about Holly" during that period is stretching it a bit... Granted, he was not as known as he once was, but he and The Crickets were quite popular and had a few million sellers and other charting hits-I find it hard to believe that he became almost unknown: Surely he still had a lot of fans left from the 50s who played his records, etc...
