Among other things, Buddy Holly popularized the rock lineup of two guitars, bass & drums.
He was the first rock star to write and produce his own songs.
He was the first rock star to wear glasses.
And the Beatles named themselves (in part) as a tribute to his band (the Crickets).
Who knows what he might have done if he'd lived.
