Born in 2052, Robert “Bud” Hollis grew up as a fairly ordinary, middle-class guy in Oklahoma. Very early on, he discovered that he was extremely musically talented and, by the time he graduated high school, he was already playing local gigs throughout the state. Constant tours in backwater gigs forced him to quickly learn how to defend himself from drunken “fans.” Thanks to the similarity of his name with the historical Buddy Holly, he sort of fell into an impersonator gig with the “Cool Cats of Rock n’ Roll Tour” and, by his 25th birthday, had somehow managed to headline the tour (much to the chagrin of several of his fellow musicians). The Tour received good reviews, which ultimately led them to being a staple at the Riverwind Casino where they immediately became the favorite musicians of the casino owner, Mr. Davenport. And thanks to Mr. Davenport, Bud was selected for Vault 405…
