REO Speedwagon pays tribute to the legendary Buddy Holly

REO Speedwagon performed last week at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa, the site of Buddy Holly’s last show.

That fact was not lost on singer Kevin Cronin, who writes on the band’s website: “Holding my 1952 Fender Telecaster guitar, similar to the one Holly played, and wearing my black-rimmed, Buddy Holly glasses, I surprised myself, not to mention the audience, and the band for that matter, with an impromptu performance of ‘Peggy Sue'.”

Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P “The Big Bopper” Richardson were killed in a plane crash following the Clear Lake show on February 3rd, 1959.
