Oh, Boy!

What do you do if you’re presented with a guitar by the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation? Rock’n’roll pioneer Charlie Gracie celebrated by performing Buddy’s classic song, Oh, Boy!

ALL MAMA’S CHILDREN

The guitar is one of several replicas of the Gibson J-45 acoustic on which Buddy wrote many of his songs, which the Foundation has presented on loan to artists ranging from Marty Wilde to Bob Dylan as a way of keeping Holly’s legacy alive – and promoting the work of the foundation in the field of musical education. Each guitar contains a fret from Buddy’s guitar and is sleeved in a leather case, based on Holly’s original, customised with the name of one of his songs. Gracie received the I’m Gonna Love You Too guitar.

About Vintage Rock

'Maybe Tomorrow?’ No, the new issue of Vintage Rock is out now and stars... Billy Fury! Our 20-page special includes an interview with his latter-day backing band Fury’s Tornados and Vince Eager recalls his part in the landmark new album ‘The Symphonic Sound Of Fury’. We also hear from The Beach Boys’ Mike Love and Bruce Johnston about how the legendary band made the transition from doo-wop-influenced rock’n’rollers to symphonic pop geniuses. Our Classic Album is ‘In Style With The Crickets’, an amazing triumph following the tragic death of Buddy Holly. We talk exclusively to Gary ‘US’ Bonds about his early days cutting hot R&B in Virginia, his comeback with Bruce Springsteen and his return to live shows. With a new CD and biography released, we revisit the career of Wee Willie Harris, British rock’n’roll’s strangest and smallest star. PLUS! We talk to the folks building and revamping 50s Jukeboxes, we hand-pick Sam Cooke’s Top 20 hits and speak to Jerry Lee’s sister Linda Gail Lewis. In our live reviews, we head to the Wildest Cats In Town weekender where Charlie Gracie reined supreme, plus there’s a memorable doo-wop reunion in London. And we visit the world of Rockabilly-Radio online.
