Hi Danny, you are on the button with your views. Buddy did have a huge influence over here and because of him many bands were formed. You are right we did fill a void with our British Invasion. I think we all agree there was some terrific music in the 60's. Still sounds great today. Songs like that and artist's, will never be repeated. Long live the music !!
