Is Holly’s Widow Worried About Cash Cow Drying Up?
Widow of the late great rock n roll star, Buddy Holly, has threatened to sue “Peggy Sue”.
According to the AP, Holly’s widow, Maria Elena Holly, is incensed over a memoir written by Peggy Sue Gerron, subject of the famous Holly song, “Peggy Sue”.
The book is based on the friendship between Holly and Gerron. Maria Holly contends Holly never considered Peggy Sue a friend even though he wrote two songs about Ms. Gerron, “Peggy Sue” and “Peggy Sue Got Married.”
“I wanted to give him his voice. It’s my book, my memoirs,” she said from Tyler where her publishing company held a news conference Friday defending Gerron’s right to write her biography. “We were very, very good friends. He was probably one of the best friends I ever had.” Source – AP
