here's the blurb..
The Real Buddy Holly Story is the definitive story of the "undisputed father of rock music", Buddy Holly. Produced and hosted by former Beatle, Paul McCartney, this brilliant and enlightening program is the most authoritative biography ever assembled on the life of the American pop icon, and contains rare film clips, unreleased performance footage and features interviews with McCartney, Keith Richards, Phil and Don Everly, Sonny Curtis, Jerry Allison and more.
Paul McCartney guides us through stories and songs of the legendary hit-maker and the tremendous influence that he had on popular music.

Buddy Holly was a man of humble beginnings who was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. In just eighteen months he recorded 9 top ten hits and his sound continues to influence generations of musicians and songwriters. His genius came early, but his voice was forever silenced on February 3rd, 1959, when he was killed in a tragic airplane crash along with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper - a day in history that has become known as "the day the music died." The death of Buddy Holly has left a void in the rock music world that has never been filled to this day.
The Real Buddy Holly Story is a celebration of the life of a true American idol.
if that sort of thing sounds like it floats your boat (and i'm assuming it does if you're reading this community) then you really should get it!
