                                   Peggy Sue's new book 2008





Whatever_happened_to_Peggy_Sue.jgp
                   



Ich muss gestehen, dass ich im Jahr 2008 nicht damit gerechnet habe, eine Korrektur machen zu müssen. Eine Veränderung der Sichtweise als Fan. Wie mir scheint, eine bemerkenswerte Veränderung. Wenn alles das stimmt, was in dem neuen Buch von Peggy Sue Gerron steht, dann schreiben wir die "Buddy Holly Story" in einigen Punkten neu.



Das sind für mich sogar zentrale Punkte, die tief in sein Familienleben eingreifen. Ich habe das neue Buch gelesen. Ich kann nicht anders. Hut ab, das ist eine Geschichte, die man von Anfang bis Ende an einem Stück lesen kann (ich habe das getan) und dazu eine Story, die neue Aspekte bringt, von denen Fans wie ich absolut keine Ahnung hatten, wie sollten wir auch !



Im Vorfeld gab es genug "Kriegsberichte" wegen der Veröffentlichung. Die Witwe von Buddy ging vor Gericht, um das Buch verbieten zu lassen. Es sollte nicht ausgeliefert werden, da sie den Namen von Buddy und die Reputation ihrer Firma, der Holly Properties, beschädigt sieht. Hier eine Meldung aus den USA, die dies dokumentiert:

MARIA ELENA HOLLY'S threat of a lawsuit against Peggy Sue Gerron for her book about Buddy Holly is only the latest mean-spirited act by the rock 'n' roll legend's widow. Lawsuit threat against Peggy Sue is unfair


Lubbock Avalanche-Journal - Thursday, January 24, 2008



MARIA ELENA HOLLY'S threat of a lawsuit against Peggy Sue Gerron for her book about Buddy Holly is only the latest mean-spirited act by the rock 'n' roll legend's widow.

Once again, Ms. Holly hides behind the claim she is trying to protect the name, image and reputation of Buddy Holly. Once again, we don't believe her.


She claims Ms. Gerron, who is the namesake of the hit song "Peggy Sue," lied in
her book "Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue?" about having a friendship with Buddy Holly, according to a story by Associated Press reporter Betsy Blaney.

A letter from Ms. Holly's attorney to the publisher of Ms. Gerron's book said confusion and tarnishment of Buddy Holly's name and Ms. Holly's reputation would likely result from the book.

Ms. Holly's last sham of protecting her husband's image came last year when she told Civic Lubbock it could no longer use the names of the Buddy Holly Terrace and the Buddy Holly Walk of Fame without paying a fee.

It was selfish and greedy. Lubbock had paid a great honor to Mr. Holly with the namings, and the notion she was trying to protect her husband's name was ridiculous.

Travis Holley, the rock 'n' roll star's brother, wrote a letter to the A-J saying he and other family members were proud and honored by the use of Mr. Holly's name by the city. Anyone who sincerely cared would feel the same way.

We wrote on June 18 we would respect her more if she dropped the pretense she was trying to protect the name of her late husband and admitted she was trying to cash in for all the money she can get.

We wonder what would happen if the publisher of Ms. Gerron's book offered to give Ms. Holly a cut of the royalties. We suspect the book suddenly would be deemed to be quite acceptable.

In any case, the threat of a frivolous lawsuit is empty. Unauthorized biographies are a common thing in the world of celebrities. Even when the celebrities are viciously attacked - and that certainly is not the case with Ms. Gerron's book - the books are published.

We hope Buddy Holly's name will fall into public domain under the Texas Property Code next year, which will be 50 years after his death. It would be a happy day for many of us in Buddy Holly's hometown if Maria no longer had control of his name.
