BUDDY HOLLY








                               Thanks to Ian for the superb photos !



                                       Doncaster - March 2008



Ian Higham hat an einer Gedenkveranstaltung in Doncaster / England aus

Anlass der 50. Wiederkehr der UK-Tour von Buddy Holly und den Crickets

teilgenommen und darüber einen Bericht verfasst, wofür ich mich sehr

bedanke.



                                                


I've just returned from a great weekend in Doncaster.

The event held on March 8th was part of the 50th anniversary of Buddy's

British tour and was organised by John Firminger editor of 'Crickets File'

magazine. 






CRICKETS_FILE_MAG.jpg






It was held at the Regent Hotel located directly opposite the Odeon

cinema where Buddy & The Crickets played in March 1958 when it

was then known as the Gaumont Theatre.






Regent_Odeon_Gaumont.jpgThe Regent Hotel (Right) and the Odeon cinema (Left) where Buddy played in 1958 when it was known as the Gaumont Theatre.






The event consisted of two distinct halves, a memorabilia fanfare on

Saturday afternoon and an evening concert featuring top northern

Tribute band 'Hollydayz'.






Dutch fans Lee De Klerk, Angela Rijnaard & Leny De Klerk






There were visitors from as far afield as Holland and Spain which

made our journey from the south coast seem a comparative stroll! 


The Regent was a friendly family run hotel and proved an ideal

venue for this event.






Display of Ian's sheet music






The Beatles themed Abbey Road Bar was the location for the memorabilia

fair at which I presented a display of Buddy Holly & Crickets items.

Despite being provided with most of the tables, these proved insufficient

to display all I had brought along. 


Jim Carr of 'Holly International' magazine was in attendance and sold

a few more copies of his UK Tour book.

Mr Firminger had a stall with 'Crickets File' and other publications

including the new Spencer Leigh book about Eddie Cochran and

Gene Vincent.

Renowned Holly historian John Ingman was there along with many

familiar Cricket perves.

It was a pleasure to also meet Barry Holley, a well respected Holly

fan who I had not met before.


There was also a continuing film show of various Holly related

documentaries.


The fanfare lasted for around three hours between 2-5pm. 






Dedicated fan! Joop Rijnaard's shows off his new tattoo!






The evening tribute show kicked off at 7.30 with the band appearing

at 8.30.

Classical style guitar playing including excellent versions of 'Learning

The Game'.

Believe me, Chris was superb. He plays with Dave Berry & The

Cruisers.

The show featured a chronological presentation of Buddy's songs,

the first half concentrated on the 'Buddy & Bob' and

'Nashville Sessions' years.


After the break, the 'hit' session began and the capacity crowd were

really rocking, helped along with very reasonably priced northern ale.

The event was such a success there is talk of doing a repeat next year.


I imagine a bigger venue will be required!

Hey Hans!! I found your web site.

It's great!! This is your Navajo 'Buddy' from New Mexico,

USofA...StanEld.

You can bet I'll be a frequent visitor. I was stationed in

Sembach Air Base way back in the late 70s;

near Kaiserslautern, Rhineland Pfalz.

I now have a good reason to try to re-learn my Deutsch.

I feel honored you even 'talked' to me at the

www.buddyholly.com;

You know you're a Buddy Holly Fan when... web page.

Didn't realize I was chatting with a True Buddy Fan.
