5.0 out of 5 stars Love, admiration and a homage to a legendary singer... 22 July 2013
By Donald Riggio - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is perhaps THE most comprehensive compilation on the life of the legendary rock and roll singer Buddy Holly ever published. Holly, whose career skyrocketed across the sky before his tragic death in an airplane crash in 1959,is lovingly immortalized in the pages of this book. Author Gary Clevenger has compiled many rare and previously unpublished photos of Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson who also died on that fateful night. He has also gathered remembrances and tribute pieces from classmates, friends and family to enhance this work. The night of February 3rd, 1959 has been dubbed "the day the music died." You can add this "must-read" book to the list of constant reminders proving this statement to be untrue. Thanks to Clevenger et al Holly's memory, like his music will last forever.

Donald Riggio- Author "Seven-Inch Vinyl," and "Beyond Vinyl."
