Gary Busey stars in this biopic of Fifties rock 'n' roller Buddy Holly, whose career was tragically cut short when he died in the infamous 1959 plane crash. Holly grows up in the redneck Texan community of Lubbock, and his dreams of making it as a songwriter are discouraged by both his mother - who wants him to get a proper job - and girlfriend. However, by the age of 22, Holly and his band, the Crickets, have embarked on their road to fame with hits such as 'That'll Be the Day' and 'Peggy Sue'.

Product Reviews

If you're a Holly fan you'll approve.

Busey plays a believable Buddy in this biopic of one of the fifties most famous and popular singers. Though some say that if he'd lived his music wouldn't have stood the test of time like Lewis, Richard etc. We'll never know.
