gifted storyteller but an accomplished musician and a pilot, and he uses these attributes to provide new and unique insights into Holly s music, his all too brief life and his death Bonnie Bartel Latino, author and former columnist for Stars and Stripes newspaper Europe Buddy Holly inspired a generation of musical greatness But in many ways, he was very different from the musicians he inspired

    1. I give this book a five star, amazing rating only because I have never read a book that made me feel like I was sitting next to the author on a bar stool listening to him tell me this story over a couple of beers.This is not a biography of Buddy Holly. It is about the author's quest to understand how he could of blown off the rock and roll era that was influenced so heavily by Buddy Holly. Gary Moore takes us with him as he runs into Buddy Holly fans all over the country. In the process they exp [...]


    2. A very nostalgic visit with the people that were effected by Buddy's music and death. Gary's search for his lost decade was a revelation to me because I just assumed everyone had heard of rock & roll. And even listened to it if not actually danced to it. Very interesting information about Buddy's advanced music writing, playing, and recording skills. Pretty amazing for someone SO very young.


    3. " Hey Buddy is a wonderful and magical journey to find Buddy Holly -- the man, the legend, and his music. You will be blown away by what you hear and what you learn from Holly. From the crash investigations, talking to the Dwyers', and just exploring a decade of music, you thought you knew. This one is a keeper."“Hey Buddy”- In pursuit of Buddy Holly, My New Buddy John, and My Lost Decade of Musicby Gary W.
