Nota de la solapa
In 1957 a song called "Peggy Sue" by relative newcomer Buddy Holly rose to #3 on the charts and quickly gained him a gold record. But while most hit songs soar and then die, "Peggy Sue" became a classic. Sung by hundreds of artists from Connie Francis to John Lennon and transcribed into multiple languages, the song inevitably drew attention to the lady who provided the inspiration. For years, she remained a mysterious figure; only a single red rose left at Buddy's grave each year gave fans a clue she was real. Now, 50 years later, Peggy Sue Gerron, the girl next door immortalized in Buddy Hollys song, has written her memoirs. Because she was THERE, her narrative unveils the personal side of a music legend, with intimate details never before revealed in book or film. Straight from her journal, she corrects untruths and rumors, to tell one of the most compelling stories in music history.Peggy Sue begins her tale in Lubbock High School where she meets Jerry Allison, Buddy Hollys best friend. She forges a close friendship with Buddy but marries Jerry. Buddy finds himself a bride, too, but after the marriages, things change unexpectedly between her and Buddy. Follow Peggy Sue through her confusion about love and devotion, her prophetic nightmares of impending tragedy, a plane crash that shatters her hopes, and, the surprising facts of the accidents aftermath. Accompany her on a rocket ride to Hollywood where the Crickets build an identity without Buddy, and work with rock and roll greats like Bobby Vee, the Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison. Stay with her as she struggles to cross over, from a life drawn in destiny, to an unyielding determination to preserve the truth and keep the music alive. Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue? is the story of dreams, destiny, tragedy, lost innocence, and, ultimately, getting on with life.Ver Descripción del producto

Peggy Sue's story contains some revelations--particularly that Buddy was planning to file for divorce of Maria Elena--and gently hints that Peggy Sue was his real love all along. Perhaps so. Maria Elena has achieved a tough-as-nails reputation, even going as far as trying to prevent the publication of this memoir. And, it is widely questioned whether or not she really was pregnant when Buddy was killed in that plane crash.
This book resonates with a sound of truth, and is a gentle look at another side of a man whose life and music impacted -- and directed -- music as knew it back then, as well as today. Immensely personal and highly enjoyable, this book is definitely on the must read list for any fan of Buddy Holly's, as well as Peggy Sue's. I'm so glad she wrote this one!!!
