Buddy Holly
Paul McCartney on John Lennon & Their Love of Buddy Holly

Paul McCartney reminisces on writing songs with his fellow Beatles member, John Lennon. He tells a funny story of a time when Lennon, who was practically blind without his glasses on, mistook a nativity scene for a group of people playing cards for a ridiculous amount of hours outside. McCartney mentions how Lennon was greatly inspired by rock and roll pioneer Buddy Holly–and mentions how they both appreciated how unlike Elvis, Holly wrote his own music: “Buddy wrote and played. And played the solos. He was a self-contained guy, which was what we were trying to emulate.”
