I don't know enough about 50s marketing to weigh in on that, and I didn't mean that he became popular *just* because of his image, I was just speculating that maybe an image that worked so well in the 50s seemed uncool by some point in the 60s so he didn't continue to be as widely revered as a trail blazing rock'n'roller. Maybe that's not true. I don't remember hearing alot of sixties rockers mention him as an influence though. I you?
I think Buddy Holly's wholesome image retained its appeal because white kids thought he was more relatable.
