    Description

    Buddy Holly and the Crickets Autographed British Tour Program Book. During their 1958 heyday, Buddy Holly & The Crickets were big in America, and 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 music 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 coming 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. The program is in Fine condition with mild overall wear, a 1" spine split, and a vertical fold crease down the center of the book. Holly's autograph is large and clear, as are the rest. A rare autograph on a significant item. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
