    According to people I've talked to who were alive in the late 1950s, Buddy Holly wasn't that big a name. He had had a few hit songs but his career was cut short before it really had a chance to take off. They say that if he hadn't died when he did, he likely would be largely forgotten today. How many people really remember Paul Anka, Bobby Darin, Pat Boone, Duane Eddy, Fabian, Ricky Nelson, Fats Domino, and Jackie Wilson? All these male artists were more popular at the time than Buddy Holly. The difference is that they outlived that era and had a chance to fade into oblivion while Buddy never did. To be honest, I think the same thing would have happened to Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison if they had lived instead of dying young.
