charles hardin holley, better known as buddy holly, was only 22 when he died. it's almost painful to imagine where his life would have taken him if he hadn't gotten on that plane. the things he would have done...but still, despite being so young, he somehow managed to leave so much behind. rock n' roll just wouldn't be the same without him...and man, did the kid have style...

he could be a hipster from 2011 with his clothes - but he's the original! <3
