Hi there.

I´m just wondering if Buddy Holly´s bass player ever did play electric bass on any of the recording with the Crickets?

Hope someone could help me!

Thanks

Buddy Holly was the Mozart of popular (Rock n Roll) music. The question is not to think of what he may have done in the future, the question should be what would today's music be without having had a Buddy Holly.
Answer... Probably NO Beatles, No Rolling Stones, No Hollies, No Hermans Hermits, No Peter and Gordon, No Searchers, No Ramones, No Elton John .... I could go on... What these air heads under 30's from N.America dont realize is that in 1958 Buddy Holly and the Crickets were the "Beatles" of the day in the UK. and Influenced all the pre mentioned bands and artists. Buddy Holly's music continued to be released in the UK resulting in recordings in the top of the charts for each year through , 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962 and 1963. Infact having FOUR top 20 hits in 1963/4 with recordings of Brown Eyed Handsome Man, Bo Diddley, Reminiscing and Wishing. Buddy Holly's influence to musicians in the UK is above all others. He continues to have influence till today and has had a top ten album every decade from the 1950's to present. probably one of the only artists to achieve such a status. Make no mistake Buddy Holly's influence on musicians from the UK is enormous!! RAVE ON, Buddy..... and The Crickets

Buddy's impact on popular music since 1957 to the present day is immeasurable.
A true original way ahead of his time.

Possibly on the sessions Buddy did in Sept.1958 at Norman Petty's studio in Clovis N.M.(which I beleive was Buddy's last session with the Crickets.
(It was during this time Buddy recorded Waylon Jennings,he also brought sax player King Curtis down for the session.)
Joe B. Mauldin I beleive started using a sunburst '58 Fender Precision Bass in the summer or late spring of 1958.

Reminiscing is one of my favorite final Buddy Holly tunes, beleive it was finished being produced in 1962.
