I have watched "The Buddy Holly Story" several times over the years, however, I just noticed near the end of the movie in Holly's last concert (Clear Lake, Iowa), he calls out King Curtis for a sax solo during a song.

Did King Curtis play with him on his last concert or did the director take poetic license with this one?

Can't find anything on the net to confirm King Curtis's appearance.....

HELP......

Bluedad - I've never heard that King Curtis was one of those that played the Winter Dance Party at the Surf with Buddy Holly. It appears that he did play on the last Holly recording but was not included in the Winter Dance Party tour.

Bluedad its false buddys last band called "The Crickets" Was Waylon jennings, Tommy Allsup and carl bunch on drums. If you get the chance check out Paul mccartneys "the real buddy holly story" a documentry he decided to make after seeing the movie
