Welcome to the message board from another female Holly fan.

Buddy Holly's fandom has always been mostly male. Decades ago his mother, Ella Holley, commented on it. I have no idea why this is true.

In the late 1950s, like many teenage girls, I was gaga about Elvis. However, the plane crash really focused my attention on Buddy, and I have been a fan ever since.

If you haven't already read these, I recommend the following books:

REMEMBERING BUDDY JOHN GOLDROSEN & JOHN BEECHER

RITCHIE VALENS FIRST LATINO ROCKER BEVERLY MENDHEIM BILINGUAL REVIEW PRESS 1987

KING OF CLOVIS FRANK BLANAS (about Norman Petty)

DAY THE MUSIC DIED LARRY LEHMER SCHIRMER BOOKS 1997

To find out the basics of the plane crash (if you haven't read it already), go to the National Transportation Safety Board's website (ntsb.gov) and in the search area type in "February 3, 1959". This brings up the link to the Civil Aeronautics Board Aircraft Accident Report, which is free to read, print, download.

It would be a good idea if Jerry Allison wrote his autobiography.

Hope this is useful to you. And again welcome to our message board.

Sue Frederick
