Words of Love 1959 - 2009
A Book by Gary L. Clevenger

Words Of Love 1959-2009
A book By Gary L Clevenger

An innovative idea from Gary has lead to a completely new book about Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, the Big Bopper (J.P. Richardson), and Roger Peterson, the pilot on the ill-fated flight of February 3, 1959. Read for the first time the many memories these four young guys left with family members, friends, fans and fellow artists. Read about their music, their personalities and how they affected the lives of the people who knew them, who saw them perform or who just heard their recordings. They have gone, but they are not forgotten.

Amongst the photos in the book are SEVEN of Buddy and the Crickets, on and off stage in Hershey, Pennsylvania, in 1957 and 1958, which are published here for the first time.

This book is like no other book, and gives a completely different view of these four young men!

The book, in A4 format with 130 pages, is available now, so


Reviews of the US version of the book include-

most heart touching thoughts, memories (and) anecdotes...." Caroline Erin Smith.

" puts a whole new perspective on their lives.... They were just the same as you and me, same hopes, same dreams." Mike Havens.

"....the comments and interviews in the book are actually 'words of love' from friends and family...." Vicky Pickering.
