3. The Quarrymen, “That’ll Be the Day”
The Beatles are the most acute example of Buddy Holly’s cultural legacy. As teens John, Paul and George bonded over a mutual love of the Holly’s music and soon formed their own “skiffle and rock” group, The Quarrymen, whose very first recording was a cover of “That’ll Be the Day.” Awww, the baby Beatles. I wanna pinch John’s cheeks and give George a noogie.
