Review: Buddy the Musical (17th Jan 2004) As Don McLean sang in his classic hit American Pie, the music died when rock and roll legend Buddy Holly was tragically killed. But whilst watching a musical about him at Bath's Theatre Royal, it became rapidly apparent that his music will definitely live forever.

A cast of over 20 people took the audience right back to the 50s in this show from the West End, as they portrayed the life of the young man from Texas who changed the face of music.

But this was no mere tribute show filled with rock and roll star wannabes. This was a performance that left everyone exhausted with excitement because it not only gave us hit after hit but it actually told us his true, emotional story as well.

The instant the curtain went up, we were greeted with nostalgia. Advertisements from the relevant era hung as a backdrop to Buddy Holly and the Crickets as the story unfolded of how this influential band first started.

Then we were reminded of the plight of this musical genius as he faced the struggle of making people in the music business aware of the need for his kind of sound.
