On this day 60 years ago, January 23 1956, a 20-year-old Buddy Holly along with guitarist Sonny Curtis and bass player Don Guess loaded their gear into Buddy’s parent’s Buick (strapping the upright bass to the roof of the car!) and left Lubbock for Nashville hoping they might cut a record and become rock and roll stars.
