I refer you to the previous thread regarding the latest book on BH titled 'Listen To Me' by Jeffrey Smith.

As previously stated, I contacted the author to ask him where he got his source from regarding the allegation that Valens joined the tour in Hawaii and then Australia with The Crickets, Paul Anka (headliner) Jerry Lee Lewis, Jodie Sands and local boy Johnny O'Keefe.

I am pleased to say Mr Smith has replied to my email and he stated the following:

Roddy: I reviewed my research notes last p.m. I was unable to locate the promotional flyer, but in Ellis Amburn's book on BH, he references Ritchie Valens joining the other artists in Hawaii, in route to Australia.

I hope this helps.


What Jeff says is very true in that Amburn does state this but without documents or facts to back his claims up. Also, my opinion of the book by Amburn is not very high at all.

However, Jeff has admitted he has not done his own research but just copied what some other person had written.

Therefore, as promised I advised you of the Authors reply.

I am continuing my dialogue with him and he is a thoroughly nice chap.
