Charles Hardin Holley (September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959), known professionally as Buddy Holly, was an American musician and singer-songwriter who was a central and pioneering figure of mid-1950s rock and roll. He was born in Lubbock, Texas, to a musical family during the Great Depression, and learned to play guitar and sing alongside his siblings. His style was influenced by gospel music, country music, and rhythm and blues acts, which he performed in Lubbock with his friends from high school.

On Rock ‘n’ Roll, John Lennon does nothing but interpret old rock. The Beatles didn’t care whether they got the music right so long as they got the feeling. Lennon can recreate the music correctly ( Be-Bop-A-Lula ), but never catches the feeling. The most revealing failure comes on Bobby Freeman’s Do You Want to Dance. The song stands for all the gems left behind by rock’s minor heros - there’s no logic to anyone as limited as Bobby Freeman writing anything so great. But more than he misses the point of Chuck Berry and Little Richard, Lennon misses the point of this kind of rock - the stuff that sounds almost anonymous, like anyone could sing it, music whose simplicity is its greatest strength.

He went several years with minor musical success limited to the West Coast, including being the original Bob in the duo Bob & Earl. Day is most remembered for his 1958 recording of the hit song Rockin' Robin, which sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.

In retrospect, Rock 'N' Roll represents Lennon's last blast with the music that shaped him. It's also a final chance to hear one of rock's greatest figures coming to terms with his Beatles past on an album his old band probably would have made had they stuck around a while longer. It's far from perfect, but rock 'n' roll, and Lennon for that matter, rarely is. Beatles Solo Albums Ranked. See John Lennon in Rock’s Craziest Conspiracy Theories. Top 10 John Lennon Songs.
