Not Fade Away: The Life and Music of Buddy Holly
Not Fade Away: The Life and Music of Buddy Holly
by John Gribbin
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down!, 1 Feb 2011
Even though I didn't buy this book on Amazon, I have read it and I have to say it's one of the best books I've ever read. The problem with most biographies is that they all pretend to be the 'ultimate' biography. The writer usually pretends not to be a fan and in doing so, they end up putting the artist down all the time. John Gribbon however writes almost informally as though we know him. He even talks about which Buddy Holly songs he's got on his ipod! This informal style of writing makes it a light read, but also informative. In this book, John focusses on the most important subject in Buddy's life - his music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying!!, 15 Dec 2010
In my opinion this is one of the best DVD sets I've bought from amazon. The 'Elvis Lives' DVD is a surprisingly good show and is really interesting to see how, even though he's been dead for 33 yrs he can still be on tour! It also shows what a brilliant band he had, people who care so much about the music they play.
"He Touched Me" is a fantastic documentary about the religious side of Elvis. It also shows some of his best performances as well. (Whenever he performed "How Great Thou Art", it was always worth a standing ovation!)
Don't hesitate to buy this DVD set, it's the greatest!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, 15 Dec 2010
Very good book. Not the greatest book for detail, (it's not the ultimate Elvis book) but it's a great read for people who already know his life story. Don't buy it if you've only just become a fan of Elvis, but buy it if you've been a fan for a while and already know a lot about him.
