    1. John Lennon LOVED Buddy and looked up to him as inspiration. He even had the same glasses as him in the late 50s to the mid 60s. There's videos of John singing some of his songs and on his 'Rock'N'Roll' album he sang the songs Peggy Sue, Rip It Up and Send Me Some Lovin'. When John first stepped onto the stage on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 during a rehersal he said 'Is this really the stage that Buddy Holly played on?' I bet if Buddy had lived John would've loved to meet him, his idol.
