Today is the birthday of Charles Hardin Holly, known as Buddy to his friends. Here is the beginning of the Texas guitar slinger tradition that begat such luminaries as Stevie Ray Vaughn and Billy Gibbons and about 50,000,000 other cats from this great Republic (some of whom I am proud to call friends), and not a few from elsewhere in our land.
All stand, and salute the town of Lubbock sometime today.
For the rockers, this will be sometime around 2 or 3 PM, after kicking the groopies out and knocking back a bloody mary or a beer. We salute you, too, for keeping the music alive.Powered by Sidelines
