Thankyou for the reference, Roddy:

But… _but_… Craig, Sue, and Roddy, whom We All laud as protectors of the faith, I leave you with a few comments from my “GoodReads” feed which demonstrates a great many are reading Dr. Jeffrey K. Smith’s book and rating it highly…

Goodreads reports:

<<Amazing little known facts woven into this story. The author demonstrates his appreciation for Buddy on so many levels. I know more now than I did prior to opening this book so much more. I hated when I finished the book that there wasn't more. And so we will never know what Buddy could have done but it is mind blowing what he did and for such a short time... the people who he inspired (the musicians and those of us who hum or sing along).

The author was poignant "he (Buddy) had it all but the gift of time". I enjoyed this book and can say it makes me appreciate the talent of Buddy and his great fan Jeffrey K Smith. Now I am going to see and listen to Paul. >>

McCartney’s special on Buddy. Makes me appreciate too how hard it is to achieve what he and others do before they become "stars" ..."So here I go breaking all the rules. It seems so easy..."

<<This is a compelling account of the short life of American music icon Buddy Holly and the mercenary forces that undoubtedly led to his death. The writing is such that I felt emotions ranging from sadness to rage, and I feel as though I personally know the characters in the narrative. A must read for anyone who grew up in the rock and roll era and anyone who did not!

So Roddy, what do we do? The challenge is clear. The masses need to know more about our buddy… and they're eating up this book.

My challenge, of course, NOW is, that I must buy the book, if I’m going to review it…
