I agree. Big fan. But Buddy Holly passed at 22 and look at his back catalogue.

He wrote the songs though. And they've stood the test of time.

There are some keyboard warriors on the internet who would dismiss Anne Frank as a one-hit wonder... :rolleyes:

Yes, but, surprisingly, that particular song was written by Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys.

 

Still a great song either way.

He's a funny looking fella these days though, which also goes for guy who was on too gear this week (Tyler).

The young uns these days wear seatbelts so they get to top the hit parade in their teens and live to enjoy the royalties.

Are these the same brain dead generations who invented the phones that you can listen to Eddie Cochran on?

We are all children, and prisoners, of our own generation.

 

Each generation owes an often unacknowledged and later-realised debt to its predecessors.

 

There are analogies between the surges of rock-and-roll, beatlemania, punk and rap ... in each case, the kids on the street pushed the change, not the prevailing music industry's establishment.

 

Hopefully, we are due another, even though I am probably too old to actually like it.

The entrepreneurs and music industry absolutely created and pushed the change
