2pixletwin: what is "very little"? Fwiw, I didn't deny Buddy Holly's talent & creativity - in fact, said in the other thread that I read he was innovative engineer or sth. to the effect. Writing introspective songs, with full orchestration doesn't convince me that he'd go from there making album akin to "Pet Sounds" or weird psychedelic stuff. There's many country artists that didn't change radically, I think Buddy would be ilke them. It's just nagging idea I've got.

I had some good comments on that, but internet connection is dodgy now and too tired to write it all again.

Sure. If the Internet works, will you write them down? Shortly maybe. Curious.

I can easily imagine Buddy leaning more towards country music as he got older. The Everly Brothers 80's records got more airplay at AC and country than pop or rock radio. Jerry Lee Lewis had a long string of country hits from the late 60's on through the 70's. And Buddy would have added his own unique slant on it, as the Evs did, as Rick Nelson did, even Elvis.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

It's sad, to be sure, but 85's a better age than that of his unfortunate colleagues back in 1959.

I must check out his discography.

R.I.P., sir.
