Buddy Holly was killed at 22 when the plane he was travelling in crashed on 3 February 1959. Although this was less than two years after Hollys first hit record, Don McLean described this as the day the music died. But Sonny Curtis, Hollys friendMoreBuddy Holly was killed at 22 when the plane he was travelling in crashed on 3 February 1959. Although this was less than two years after Hollys first hit record, Don McLean described this as the day the music died.

But Sonny Curtis, Hollys friend and musical colleague, told us that the music didnt die, because Buddy Holly lives every time you play rocknroll. Fifty years after Hollys death, his lasting influence is clear- a musical based on his life seems set to run for longer than his lifetime and artists as diverse as Blink 182 and Bob Dylan call him an inspiration.The Beatles chose Thatll Be the Day by Buddys group The Crickets as their first attempt at recording, as well as taking the idea for their name.

Clearly, the music didnt die!John Gribbin, an ardent fan since he was twelve, presents this labour of love written in the spirit of Sonny Curtis lyric, as a celebration of Hollys all too brief life, and as an introduction,for all those not around in 1959, to the man and his astonishing musical legacy.

Not Fade Away also includes - uniquely - a full and detailed account of every Holly recording session, which any Buddy fan will devour.
