Billy Holiday And The Beatles A Story You Will Never Forget

"It’s said of The Beatles that if you took the vocals off of their first three albums you would swear you were listening to Buddy Holly."

 Lennon and McCartney later cited Holly as a primary influence.

The Beatles bug-themed band's name chosen partly in homage to Holly's Crickets.

The Beatles did a cover version of "Words of Love" that was a close reproduction of Holly's version.

During the January 1969 sessions for the Let It Be album, the Beatles played a slow impromptu version of "Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues" — although not written by Holly, it was popularized by him — with Lennon mimicking Holly's vocal style.
