A friend was telling us in the pub last night about a programme he saw about Buddy Holly. Apparently shortly before his death Buddy saw the film “The Searchers” in which John Wayne several times says “that’ll be the day” and this inspired the title of his next song. So what would have happened if he hadn’t died? Picture this TV ad…
“To celebrate his 55 years in the business, K-Tel Records presents “Story, Bud”, the definitive collection of Buddy Holly songs. This 22-CD set, which is not available in shops, features all his greatest hits, including “Lunch is for Wimps”, “Precious, My Precious”, “Go Ahead Punk, Make My Day”, “We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat” and of course the massive Number One, “You Were Only Supposed to Blow the Bloody Doors Off”.
Buy this collection today and we’ll throw in the DVD of Elvis (yes, he’s still alive too) Presley’s 90th Birthday Concert, where the now 42-stone singer tries to repeat his famous pelvis wiggle.
Yes, you too can own a copy of “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On”.”
