Buddy Holly was the living personification of the American dream - young, talented and in love. His image and memory have been cast in stone since his tragic death at the age of 22. Ellis Amburn's biography liberates Buddy from the constraints of myth, the chains of perfection. Buddy had been portrayed as a shy, polite and correct gangling youth for so long, that the hardback edition of this book was at first greeted with controversy. This biography is based on new materials and conversations with those who were closest to Holly, and it reveals a rock 'n' roll hero very different to the one we all thought we knew.show more
