    I thought Smokey Joe's Cafe was an interesting new direction. Eh, scratch that. I think it may have been a cover of someone else.

    Would have loved to have seen him transition into "harder" rock-n-roll. Such a shame.

    It’s truly scary, when contemplating what he achieved in such a short, meteoric career...what a genius & what if!?

    I lived in west Texas for many years. When I think of Buddy, I think of Waylon. Perhaps he was Buddy's greater legacy.

    I think he would have gone one of two ways...

    A producer who worked with everybody in all kinds of genres and acquired mythical status (like the guys at Atlantic or Columbia records who were known only by guys in the business).

    -Or-

    Pop songs leaning toward Country accents (listen to "True Love Ways"), and eventually becoming a bona-fide country star, kinda like Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins did.

    Man, if he could have just gotten through the 60's. He'd have to dominate. Grow long hair. Produce ELvis, the Beatles, and have music on the charts along side of them.

    I'm still not convinced he wasn't some offside avatar of Ted Williams.

    Buddy was a bit prone to schmaltzy overproduction, and he didn't push the Strat's possibilities too far. But as "Well, All Right" shows, he could really dig around those roots. I sure could see him well sloughing off the schmaltz. So many great and witty instincts just beginning to really develop. Three-chord mini-operas are self-resetting things.

    AND he had those hero-geek back-of-the-comic-book X-ray specs, too!

    Since this is a Buddy Holly thread on a Telecaster site, maybe someone knows....did Buddy ever play a Tele, like he did in the awful Buddy Holly Story? All I can remember seeing him with are Strats and acoustics. Anyone?

    He had a 52 gold top Les Paul before the Strat.

    Apples & avocados...I love Waylon, got to see him with Willie, Jesse Colter & Leon Russell, while lying on the grass field at Commonwealth Stadium, summer ‘85. No disrespect, as they’re both true, Texas maverick’s, but Buddy is forever, a trailblazing pioneer, unlike any other. The punk-a-billy vocals, great, rhythmic guitar, melodic, songwriting sensibilities & his iconic presence
