61Buddy HollyCharles Hardin Holley, known as Buddy Holly, was an American musician and singer-songwriter who was a central figure of mid-1950s rock and roll.
Buddy Holly had an influence on so many people who came after him. I would have to say that by influencing the Beatles, Bob Dylan and so many others that Buddy's influence is through the roof. I do not think anyone else could match it.
