About this title


This 2nd edition of Buddy Holly's biography This'll Be the Day has a new subtitle--Buddy Holly's Life and Crickets' Legacy. Thanks to a new Introduction by Buddy's Crickets' 1960-65 lead singer Jerry Naylor, it features 100 new pages, and personal insights by Buddy's hit-record girl "Peggy Sue" Gerron, plus other Crickets. Buddy's pioneer rock band from the 50's inspired four Liverpudlians to become the Beatles. Brandishing a Fender Stratocaster and a bold new breed of rock and roll, Buddy Holly anchors the big three founders of rock, with Elvis and Chuck Berry. This'll Be the Day focuses on Buddy's life, untimely aerial passing, and seemingly immortal legacy in nearly every branch of Rock and Soul and Country music we listen to today. Dean's is the most complete Holly biography and Holly afterglow ever published. The 2nd edition is sparked by Naylor, whose legendary '07 Rockabilly Legends recently hit the top ten for US library acquisitions. Buddy Holly represents Everyman as rock star. Unlike Elvis, Holly made it to the top on his songwriting and guitar expertise, as well as his catchy tunes and happy lyrics and joyous thundering rhythm--as featured by Rolling Stone magazine's #3 drummer ever, Cricket Jerry Allison. Any kid with three chords and a rock and roll dream can invoke Rock and Roll's patron saint and muse of rhythm & blues, Buddy Holly, our most universal rock pioneer. Though Don McLean's grand, gloomy "American Pie" claims the music died in a 2-3-59 plane crash, This'll Be the Day shows that Buddy's thunderbeat music, and most of his original Crickets and their proteges, live on to celebrate Buddy Holly's rockin' heritage. Half of the book chronicles Buddy's brief superstar career (1 1/4 years). The other half shows all the wildly divergent Rock and Soul and Country giants who mingled his magnificent music into their own repertoires and lifestyles and heritage. Cricket Sonny Curtis said "Buddy Holly lives every time we play rock and roll."
