This awesome 80s tee comes from a commemorative concert for Buddy Holly and the Crickets. The first incarnation of the group emerged in 1957 as Holly, Jerry Allison, Joe Mauldin, and Niki Sullivan. Soon after, Sullivan dropped out and the trio carried on as the Crickets. They saw early success with the help of recording engineer, Norman Petty, releasing their first hit record, "That'll Be the Day."
Holly went solo a year later and found success on his own, recording in this time, "Crying, Waiting, Hoping," "It Doesn't Matter Anymore," "Raining in My Heart," and "Moon Dreams." But his life was cut short when he was involved in what is referred to as, "The Day the Music Died." In 1959, Holly, along with Ritchie Valens, and J.P. Richardson, and their pilot Roger Peterson were killed suddenly in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa the city where this 1982 tribute was held. After his death, disc jockeys began calling the group Buddy Holly and the Crickets.
