HASH(0x99270810) étoiles sur 5 A Strong Five Star Book 24 juillet 2000
Par Bill Emblom - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book brought back a lot of musical memories from the late 1950's and provided a lot of information regarding this period of time. The fame that went with being a rock and roll star was not all that it was cracked up to be. Buddy's home town of Lubbock, Texas, didn't really appreciate the fact that they had a well known celebrity in their midst. In addition, there are stories about other rock stars such as Buddy Knox and Jimmy Bowen. An interesting story of Buddy's appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show regarding his singing the controversial song "Oh Boy" is told. Norman Petty was the one who controlled Buddy Holly's money and this made it difficult for Buddy to even buy groceries for himself and his wife. While Buddy and his wife were living in Greenwich Village in New York City in 1959 it was his wife's aunt who supported them. This lack of money was the reason Buddy decided to go on the ill-fated Winter Dance Party through the upper midwest that began in January of 1959. This turned into a poorly put together affair by GAC, General Artists Corporation, which provided a poorly equipped bus in which to travel. It was this constant travel in a freezing bus with a bad engine and a concert to give every night in a different town that led to using a chartered airplane. Ironically, February 2nd was supposed to be their only day off during this Winter Dance Party, but GAC then scheduled them to appear in Mason City, Iowa, for that night shortly before this date. Buddy decided to hire a chartered airplane to fly he and his band members, Waylon Jennings and Tommy Allsup, to Moorhead, Minnnesota, so they could get some rest while the others took the bus. J. P. Richardson, The Big Bopper, was ill with the flu and he wanted to fly ahead, so he took Waylon Jennings place on the plane. Ritchie Valens also hoped to fly ahead and he and Allsup flipped a coin to see who would fly as the third passenger. Valens "won" the flip. The pilot of the airplane, Roger Peterson, wasn't fully qualified to fly the plane, but he didn't want to pass up a chance to fly the three stars. Peterson's mother blamed the rock stars for her son's death by saying that if they had not wanted to take a plane, her son would not have died. Despite the loss of these three members of the group, the remaining members including Dion and the Belmonts, had to complete the tour which ended in mid-February. Bobby Vee was a high school student in Moorhead, Minnesota, and he volunteered to help fill in for this next concert. Some careers start in strange ways. Following Buddy's death, his parents would make a few trips to Mason City to see where their son last performed. A person's life is not measured in how many years they live. Buddy's was a short one, but he did leave a lasting impact on a generation of his fans and influenced a number of singers who became popular after he died. There are a number of other interesting stories in this book. I would very much recommend this book to you. I only wish it was in hard cover.

HASH(0x99270864) étoiles sur 5 Warts and all, this is Buddy 13 février 2002
Par BC2112 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A very well-written book, meticulously researched, and logically paced. OF COURSE, Buddy's sex life needs to be discussed to fully understand one of the roots of his brilliance. For anyone who has ever pondered the origin of the words "rock 'n' roll," it should be obvious why some of these details are included. (If you want a pious, fictionalized recollection, go watch "The Buddy Holly Story.")
If your perception of Buddy was that of a nerdy, goody two-shoes hillbilly who hiccuped his way through a few catchy songs, you're about to have a wake-up call. Ambrose's portrait of Buddy as an explosively confident creative visionary and street-wise "ladies' man" makes for a fascinating and entertaining read.

HASH(0x99270c9c) étoiles sur 5 WISH THEY WOULD HAVE BASED THIS BOOK FOR THE MOVIE! 17 février 2000

After reading this book, I am disappointed with the movie "THe Buddy Holly Story". I don't see why this book is any worse than the other biographies on Buddy Holly. I read one called "Remembering Buddy" and it is just like this book. How do you people complaining know for a fact that this book isn't factual but that the other bigraphies on Buddy Holly are? I really learned a lot from this book on the real Buddy Holly and his influence on musicians that followed.

HASH(0x9927106c) étoiles sur 5 Love this book 30 mai 2013
Par Han Bergmans - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book shows you a side to a great man who still had so much to live for. Even tho he was portrayed as a geek, he was nothing like that.
Instead he was a smooth with the women and loved a good time. For the rest was he a real visionary man who knew exactly what he wanted.

To me this was a very easy book to read. It was interesting to take that look behind the scenes and read what other people had to say about him. The only dislike I have is that sometimes it explains a little too much about a certain matter. I did tend to skip those parts.
But I would surely recommend it to everyone who loves Buddy Holly. As he was a great man!

HASH(0x99270d38) étoiles sur 5 Great tribute to the Real King Of Rock N Roll 23 février 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have read and studied Buddys Music and life for many years and found this book to be a very detailed accout of both. I also wish the movie would have been like this book. Yes, their are a few disturbing facts in the book not only about Buddy but about some of the other pioneers of rock. Little Richard. Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran etc..This makes the book that much more of a good read. Those who condem this book need to watch the documentary "The Real Buddy Story" done by Paul McCartney for the BBC some years ago. I think it validates allot of the stories in the book, except some about the last moments before the crash. Whose to say these are not true? I have yet see or here anyone that can say for sure what did happen. Buy this book and the documentary (both avaiable from Amazon) you will enjoy them for many years.
