I refer you to the new biography on BH titled 'Listen To Me' by a man named Jeffrey K. Smith.

I have only been sent excerpts from said book but that is enough for me.

In the book the writer claims Ritchie Valens flew to Hawaii and then implied he came to Australia for the tour. This of course, we all know to be pure myth.

To the best of my knowledge, Valens never came into the limelight until September/October 1958 long after the Australian tour.

Also, Valens was not going to be included in the second Australian tour scheduled for June/July 1959. I have confirmed this (with documentation).

Additionally, he takes the usual bashing of Norman Petty without any facts, documentation or even eye witnesses to back up his rubbish claims.

As a person who has written 12 books so far I very rarely go into print to say something negative like the above about a fellow author but enough is enough.

Where, how and who do these people get their so-called research from?

In the last 12 months or so there have been quite a few articles written about the Australian tour of January/ February 1958 and the errors/myths are sometimes
