Reseña del editor

Nearly 50 years after Buddy Holley’s tragic death, Peggy Sue Gerron has written her memoirs. Using her personal diary, she unveils intimate details about her relationship with Buddy and the Crickets never before revealed in book or film. Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue is one of the most fascinating stories in Rock and Roll history, told by the woman who was there!

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 Holly’s 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 Holly’s 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 accident’s 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.
