Remembering Buddy is the definitive biography of Buddy Holly, written with the co-operation of Holly's family and friends and hist musical and business colleagues. In consummate detail, Remembering Buddy traces Holly's life from his birth in Lubbock, Texas, in 1936, to his tragic plane crash 23 years later. Buddy Holly was a rock pioneer who wrote his own material, led his own group, and recorded a catalogue of classic songs. He influenced everyone from The Beatles and Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello. Though Holly's career was brief, world-wide sales of his records run into many millions and his birthday is still celebrated world-wide. Remembering Buddy contains a wealth of information for Holly fans, and will introduce the man behind the music that is continually to be found on "goldie oldie" stations around the country and around the world. -- Midwest Book Review
