Rave On: The Biography of Buddy Holly (1996)

Rave On: The Biography of Buddy Holly

Songs like "That'll Be the Day" and "Peggy Sue" made Texan Buddy Holly a rock-and-roll star; his death at 22 in a 1959 plane crash made him a legend. England, home of his most fanatical admirers, now gives him a shrewd biographer: novelist/journalist Norman, author of the definitive Beatles book, Shout!. Norman takes a steely look at the murky business dealings by which '50s rock artists like Holly were defrauded and uses personal documents and interviews with contemporaries to capture this unlikely rocker: shy yet confident, gentle but iron-willed.
