His career lasted just two years. His influence continues to shape the course of rock and roll. Buddy Holly's first hit, "That'll be the Day," exploded onto the airwaves in 1957. Less than two years later, he died in a plane crash that also took the lives of the Big Bopper and Richie Valens. But he had already helped shape the course of popular music for decades to come. Through a host of photos, rare footage, performance clips and exclusive interviews with those who knew him best--including his widow, brother and former bandmates from the Crickets--BIOGRAPHY follows Holly from his west Texas upbringings to the fatal flight. Find out how he agonized about the glasses that became his trademark and examine the strained relationship with his manager, Norman Petty, who some blame for indirectly causing Holly's death. Some of the biggest names in music, including Keith Richards, Waylon Jennings, Phil Everly and Graham Nash, help tell the story of one of rock and roll's first superstars.
