                  I'm proud as punch to present some fan memories from 1992.


          Ich bin stolz wie Oskar, einige Fanerinnerungen von 1992 zu präsentieren.



                   JAN VINK is a real Buddy Holly fan from the Netherlands.


                    He sent me his story about a trip to Lubbock TX in 1992.



                         Jan Vink ist ein wahrer Buddy Holly Fan aus Holland.


                 Er schickte mir seine Geschichte von der Reise nach Lubbock 1992.

                              Jan was born in 1947







                                






                                        




                             " This is my story about a holiday in Texas. "

 

                    In September 1992 I went with a friend


                           of mine to Atlanta (Georgia).

                                          There we rented a camper

and off we went to Texas.

We drove through Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana to Lubbock,

Texas. Roundabout 1.400 miles. We really enjoyed this trip on the

way to our idol, the one and only Buddy Holly, who died in 1959 in
 
a fatal plane crash together with Ritchie Valens, J.P. Richardson,
 
known as the “Big Bopper” and Roger Peterson, the pilot.

Hi-Buddy.jpg
           

                                           Hi, Buddy !





I had a meeting with Bill Griggs at his home

         and we had a beautiful evening.

                             



BILL_GRIGGS_and_MARIA_ELENA_HOLLY_2010.jpg
          


               Bill Griggs and Buddy's widow Maria Elena Holly.

                    This pic was taken in 2010 in Lubbock TX,

                                     short before Bill died.


                             (By kind courtesy of Bill's widow)

                              Picture was added by the editor.




We talked about Buddy’s music and looked at a lot of pictures.
              

                   The next day I went to Buddy’s grave and stood there in

 
 silence  for a long time. It meant a lot to me to stand there.

   Hans you’re doing a lot of good work
 

         to keep Buddy’s name alive.



Thank you and greetings from Jan Vink

 
      (Rotterdam, The Netherlands)                     


                                   



Bedankt!
