Gary Moore, author of Playing With The Enemy (highly recommended!), has just written a book about Buddy Holly and the day the music died, entitled "Hey Buddy." Haven't read it yet, but if it is half as good as his first book, which told the story of his father, baseball phenom Gene Moore during WWII, then it's well worth the read.

Thanks for mentioning our book Hey Buddy by Gary W. Moore. Hey Buddy is a look at how Gary "discovers" Buddy Holly's music and life, and pursues his legacy as seen and told through the eyes of people who knew him and have been influenced by his life.

You can read more about the book at heybuddybook.com. Also check out the Event Calendar to see if Gary will be making a stop near you on his book tour. Our first Hey Buddy Quest book trailer is at heybuddyquest.com
