Synopsis:
Buddy Holly laid the foundations for a generation of popular music with his ground-breaking combination of country music and rhythm and blues. This film tells his story from it's explosive beginning to its tragic end with Gary Busey giving an electrifying, Oscar nominated performance as the young genius from Lubbock, Texas, who changed the tune of rock 'n' roll history. 'The Buddy Holly Story' is one of the best biopics ever produced for cinema and features 12 of his greatest hit songs. It's a dynamic tribute to one of the most influential rock 'n' rollers of all time and his legacy.
