The Buddy Holly Story

The Buddy Holly Story

A skinny bespectacled teenager from Lubbock, Texas walks into a recording studio with his band and the early rock’n’roll sound gets another nudge in the right direction. Buddy Holly (played by Gary Busey) records and tours with The Crickets and inspires thousands of kids to grab a twangy guitar and take their own shot at stardom. With actors performing their own vocals and playing live on stage, The Buddy Holly Story captures the energy of the era, and earned Busey an Oscar nomination.
