How generous you are, dear Roddy. “I’ll help you as much as I can.”

Who could refuse?

Unfortunately, there’s no book, here. Putting forth a tome requires so much more than just knowing every detail and digitizing text.

PRIMARILY, essentially, critically there has to be an audience.

Sure, there was a movie; numerous, laudatory documentaries; endless, tribute songs; so many bands pledging undying allegiance; a stage play; voluminous informative, detailed accounts; but still...

While, writing “Buddy Holly the Definitive Story” may be quintessentially important, _historically_, there’s all that money involved in promoting and distributing his story.

Buddy Holly, Superstar, was eventually a hard sell. Despite Bob Dylan’s Nobel acknowledgment.

Evidence, here, at how the path is littered with authors who were hell-bent on making him shine.

Sad to admit it aloud, but Vegas charisma still won out in the end.
