From today’s Mirror
EXCLUSIVE: New technology means 50s pop star Buddy Holly will be brought back to life with a holographic world tour
Buddy Holly’s wife has spoken about being reunited with her husband as a hologram – sixty years after the "Day the Music Died."
Maria Elena Holly, now 86, had only been married for six months when her 22-year-old husband’s plane crashed, in 1959. She was later immortalised as the “widowed bride” in Don McLean’s American Pie. Now her husband is coming back to life on a worldwide tour – although she admits it will be a tear-jerking moment seeing him again.
She told the Mirror: “I feel emotional every time I see a photo of Buddy, every time I hear his songs, I think about him every day.”
