Buddy Holly & The Crickets. The first true legendary band in rock history, in my opinion. Tragically taken away from us far too early. Holly and his band inspired so many of the next generation of rock legends including The Beatles, who named their own band in honor of the Crickets.
“I wore black because I liked it. I still do, and wearing it still means something to me. It's still my symbol of rebellion -- against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others' ideas.” -Johnny Cash
