I am a guitarist myself, a fan, and even perform a Buddy Holly tribute. I thought the movie was great. Even if some of the material was not accurate....so what! Read a book on Buddy's life or buy a Buddy documentary instead. Enjoy the film for the entertainment value and the music. I thought the guy played a good part as Buddy. Dare I say this.....I have seen some old movie footage of the real Buddy Holly, which is not as entertaining as the stage performances in this movie! Keep on Rockin'.
