    Buddy Holly and the Crickets Autographed British Tour Program Book. During their 1958 heyday, Buddy Holly & the Crickets were big in America, even bigger in England, their popularity rivaling that of Elvis. Unlike Presley, they actually toured England, spending a month there playing a series of shows that were still being written about 30 years later. In the process, they introduced the majesty of the Fender Stratocaster to the United Kingdom, and Holly's stage persona and musical went on to inspire the likes of Hank Marvin of the Shadows, John Lennon and Paul McCartney of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and others who would be on the forefront of the British Invasion. This is a rare copy of the program book from that historic tour that has been signed on the back cover by Holly, Jerry Allison, and Joe Mauldin, as well as on interior pages by supporting acts Gary Miller and Des O'Connor. The program is in Fine to Very Fine condition with mild overall wear and a 1" spine split; Allison's autograph has faded a bit but is still clearly visible. Holly' autograph is large and clear, as are the rest. All in all, a rare autograph on a wonderful item with great historical significance.
