    but I've long believed that Buddy Holly would have been the biggest name in music from the 1960s if he hadn't gotten on that plane.

    Why was (and still is) he one of "the greats"?

    In the words of my granddaughter, "because when I hear his music, it makes my feet want to dance!"

    Thanks for a lovely story about one of the 20th century's biggest losses in the music industry - and a personal favorite of mine.

    And thanks to Buddy, for the music.
