Christine Curry playing piano in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, NM on Buddy's birthday 2009.
Hi Hans, I sent you pictures of my artwork earlier this year... I recently visited Lubbock, TX and Clovis, NM on Buddy's birthday. Here's a couple of pictures from the trip. I got to play the piano that they used in their recordings! Still enjoying your fan site,
It was long ago and fa-a-ar away America was lookin' for something new to say All of a sudden Rock N Roll was here to stay They tried to tell us no, we said That'll Be The Day
Though some said Elvis was the king That's not where I saw the crown
'Cause Buddy Holly was the Rock N Roll Superman He wrote the best songs and played like no one can Yeah Buddy Holly was the Rock N Roll Superman And then he joined Joined every rock n roll band
He was a man of music, a saint of circumstance He taught Rock to feel and think, as well as dance He said Hey Peggy Sue She said I'm in love with you He said Maybe Baby I'm-a-gonna love you too
You wouldn't think this Clark Kent kid Was a whole Party In A Can...
But Buddy Holly was the Rock N Roll Superman He wrote the best songs and played like no one can Yeah Buddy Holly, was the Rock N Roll Superman He wrote better songs and played like no one can Then he joined Joined every rock n roll Joined every rock n roll band
Though that was long ago, I know, He's still here all over town
'Cause Buddy Holly, he's the Rock N Roll Superman Showed Lennon and McCartney how the whole thing's done, man Yes he was Yeah Buddy Holly, he was Superman
It was so tragic and wrong I coulda lost my mind His plane went down in early '59 Along with Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper too You're not forgotten, We Will Remember You
We love you with a love so rare and true Yeah, even now
'Cause Buddy Holly, you're a Rock N Roll Superman You cast a shadow taller than any other man Like Jesus with a guitar, a brown-eyed handsome man He wrote better songs than anybody else can And then he joined He joined the Hall Of Fame Gave Everyone His Name Joined every rock n roll band
