Quote from: RoyC
That was a very nice Bonneville he had as well.
Don’t have the exact details at hand but there’s this story about them entering a Harley Davidson dealer with their pockets full of cash to buy themselves a motorcycle each. But the dealer thought these young punks where mocking him so he threw them out. By chance there was a British motorcycle dealer across the street so they went in. They where received with open arms and they bought themselves some Triumphs and an Ariel.

I'm still watching the two Roy Orbison programs that followed the Crickets.

Buddy Holly died (3 Feb) a few minutes after my 15th birthday (2 Feb).  So sad.

Elvis died the day before my 17th - I guess I'm the kid here. First album I bought was Roadhawks by Hawkwind.
