Holly, Buddy: Alan Mann: The A-Z Of Buddy Holly And The Crickets

(2008/Music Mentor) paperback, english, 15.5x23.5 cm, 316 pages, 66 b&w illustrations.

The plane crash of 3 February 1959 which claimed the life of Buddy Holly was both a human tragedy, and a tragedy for rock'n'roll.  In a little under two years, Holly and his band, the Crickets, had become major stars, thanks to their high standard of musicianship and a string of memorable hits including 'That'll Be The Day', 'Rave On', 'Peggy Sue', 'Oh Boy!' and 'Heartbeat', only for their career to be cruelly cut short.  Nevertheless, Holly's records continued to sell in quantity for many years after his death – a testament to the timeless popularity of his songs.

        The A-Z of Buddy Holly and the Crickets draws together a mass of Holly facts and info from a variety of published sources, as well as the author's own original research, and presents them in an easy-to-use encyclopaedic format.  Now in its third edition, it has proved to be a popular and valuable reference work on this seminal rock'n'roller.  It is a book that every Holly fan will want to keep at their fingertips.  It is a book about a musical genius who will never be forgotten.

"A wonderful resource for fans, even those who have collected a megaload of magazines, records and memorabilia.  Most of their answers will be readily accessed in a much more agreeable way than any internet search machine!  The book is a triumph of research and remarkable testimony to the fascination and significance which a tall Texan can have on those who have been forever influenced by his music and personality."  Now Dig This (May 2009)

"In his introductory acknowledgments the author credits the John Beecher/John Goldrosen book, Rememberig Buddy, as the definitive biography and last word on Holly.  But this A-Z of Buddy Holly and the Crickets is the ideal companion, a fabulous reference work that aficionados will value as an ever-present next to their collection of Holly recordings.  And, despite being fact-filled and presented in alphabetical order throughout, it also makes a jolly good sit down and read."  Pipeline (Autumn 2009)

Artist description "Holly, Buddy"

Buddy Holly

Singer/songwriter/guitarist born Charles Hardin Holley in Lubbock, Texas in 1936. He was one of the most innovative and influential rock'n'roll artists, and the very first professional rocker to play a Fender Stratocaster. Backed by the Crickets – Niki Sullivan (guitar), Joe B. Mauldin (double bass) and Jerry Allison (drums) – he recorded his first hit, 'That'll Be The Day', at the Norman Petty Studio in Clovis, New Mexico in 1957, following on with 'Peggy Sue', 'Oh Boy!' and others.

He had a promising career ahead of him when he was tragically killed in a plane crash on 2 February 1959 together with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 1986 in the first cohort.

Sullivan died in 2004, aged 66.
