Jamie, if you ever get to Lubbock, TX, home of Colorado Bob, you've got to visit the small museum dedicated to Buddy Holly. It's been eight years since we were there but the experience was very profound. I can't think of Buddy Holly or Don McClean without thinking about this little museum in Lubbock. Thanks for the video.

Excellent video. Last year I read what I consider to be the definitive explanation of the lyrics of the song. If you are interested, you can find it here...http://user.pa.net/~ejjeff/pie.html.

American Pie is one of my all time favorite songs from one of my all time favorite singer-songwriters.

Thanks for the link to the song you left on my site. It was very nice.

I can't remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride...Buddy was great.

I am a HUGE Buddy fan. I nearly posted a Waylon Jennings song today since he lost a bet which prevented him from boarding that doomed plane.

(Waylon was Buddy's Bass player on that tour.)

"True Love Ways" is one of my favorite songs of all-time. Cheers Jamie!!

Now this is up my alley, Jamie. Listened closely to the lyrics once again. Incredible!! And thanks for the history behind the song!

This song was always one of my favorite. I heard Buddy Holly songs before this song came out, because my Momma had a record store back then. But, I got this album, and discovered another on it about Vincent Van Gogh, I think it was called "Starry, Starry, Night." Oh, you've given me a reason to go dig out the vinyls! I can always count on you to get me interested in tracking down something!
