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.

LARRY HOLLEY is Buddy Holly's oldest brother, born 10-07-1925.

He made a posting to my guestbook with kudos for my fanpages

and introducing his new book with his autobiography. Out in Sept. 2007.

I_DON'T_KNOW_HOW_I_DID_IT.jpgLarry Holley's new book containing a lot of family photos and some informations about his late brother BUDDY.



Dies ist Larry Holley's Autobiographie. Sie enthält eine Menge interessante

Familienfotos, z. T. auch mit Buddy, die meisten davon bisher noch nicht

bekannt. Auf 288 Seiten erzählt Larry sein bewegtes Leben und widmet ein

Kapitel auch seinem verstorbenen Bruder BUDDY.



I'm glad to own my personal copy with Larry's autograph

"TO HANS FROM LARRY HOLLEY"

Larry was the owner of the HOLLEY TILE Co. in Lubbock, where Buddy

worked for some time. I'm in contact with Larry's daughter Sherry for

a long time now. The building on the photo had to be removed because

of a new highway.

Here  is  Larry's  complete  message:


Dear Hans,

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

a banjo.

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.



Thanks again

 

Larry Holley
