Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings-owned 1958 Ariel Cyclone heads to auction

Anyone who has followed music in the last 60 years knows the story of Buddy Holly's demise in February, 1959, along with the fact that country singer Waylon Jennings had given up his seat on that fated plane, ultimately saving his life and leading to the death of J.P "Big Bopper" Richardson. Perhaps riding on the wave of interest in celebrity-owned motorcycles, as evidenced in the recent $100,000 selling price of a Steve McQueen-owned Harley-Davidson in Monterey, the estate of Waylon Jennings has scheduled a Jennings memorabilia auction that includes a 1958 Ariel Cyclone purchased by Buddy Holly in the months before his death.

Red Bank: Gentle Giant from Sugar Hill

Country singer-songwriter Don Williams rolls his tour bus up to the Count Basie for a Monday one-nighter on September 15. Although he's scored numerous chart-topping C&W hits, won countless CMA Awards and even gotten himself inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, he's arguably better known as a song-scribe for performers that have ranged from Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Kenny Rogers, to Pete Townshend, Robert Palmer and Eric Clapton. He's even done at least one Farewell Tour and Final Farewell Concert, before pulling a Favre and hitting the road and the recording studio once more.

One Track Mind: Billy Joe Shaver with Willie Nelson, "Hard To Be An Outlaw"

This pairing is, of course, more than fitting. It was Billy Joe Shaver who gave heft, who gave real words, to the outlaw-country movement of the early 1970s - even if Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings personified it.
