Larry Holley ist der älteste Bruder von Buddy Holly, geboren am 7. 10. 1925
Mit seiner Tochter Sherry habe ich schon lange Kontakt, um so mehr freue ich mich nun im Jahr 2007, dass Larry mir geschrieben hat. Er findet meine Webseite toll und informiert darüber, dass er seine Memoiren als Buch veröffentlicht hat.

Here is Larry's complete message:
I am sorry it took so long to get to your site but I am new at this internet stuff. I
want to thank you for helping to keep Buddy's music alive. Your site has more info
than any other that I have seen. I am Buddy's older brother and mentor and music
critic (there was very little that I could pick on). I was the first one to get to hear
the acetates because he would bring them home as soon as they were cut. Back
when Buddy was getting interested in music, he would call on me for advice and
help. I bought his first guitar, the J-45 Gibson and later the Fender Strat, and
Sherry, Travis and Larry Holly. Courtesy Larry Holley
He needed money to get started, and I helped with that as well as his Cadillac.
Since his life and mine were so closely related, much of what I did influenced him.
Now I have written an autobiography with many pictures.
This book has many funny stories as well as some vary serious, dangerous episodes
in my life. I believe this book will help people that read it see how we lived and how
it affected Buddy's life.
Again, I wish to let you know how much I like your site.
I am sending you a copy of the book and would like for you to tell me what you
think. E-mail me your shipping address as soon as possible.
