After reading this interesting alternate history where there wasn’t a plane crash and Buddy Holly never died we got to thinking of our own scenarios. Remember when Marty McFly started to disappear because history was altered? Try to imagine a world where Buddy Holly lived past his 22nd birthday.
Would the Beatles have ever become popular?
The artists of the British Invasion grew up on Buddy’s music, it is more likely that the Beatles would have even been more popular if Buddy Holly was around to mentor them.
How would Buddy have adopted to the music revolution of the late 60’s?
It is most likely Buddy would have joined the country scene of Waylon, Christopherson, Willie, Johnny, Merle, and Glen. Buddy probably would have been able to lead a country charge against the Beach Boys, Hendrix and the Beatles.
