Just before sitting down to the keyboard a moment ago, I heard the melody on t.v. of “Everyday”, playing as the musical background for a new commercial. Norman Petty and Buddy Holly created that song over a half century ago, and their work was so good……it’s still being played today. I vividly recall pulling into the Norman Petty Studio in Clovis , all those years ago, and seeing a ’56 Caddy parked out front. Everyone knew that Buddy drove a ’56 Cad ( I was driving ’55 T-Bird). While I was waiting outside Norman’s office to present some new material – I watched as he and Buddy negotiated away whatever it was they were discussing. To have been sitting just a few feet away from two world acclaimed legends…… is just as awesome now, as it was back then!
Thanks Norman and Buddy!
“Baby Boomers – You did……you will……and you can! This country still needs you – for sure ! “Ode To Baby Boomers” is for you! Go get ‘em one more time !
Transitions: By Ben Wasson
Everyone in their lifetime goes through various transitions. These are some of mine. From Rockabililly to country to Ode to Baby Boomers, Transitions is a lined with a little country, 60′s rock, and the spirit of rockabillly.
