The King Of Clovis - Norman Petty by Frank Blanas (Hardback)
by Brad Machado Date Added: Tuesday 29 July, 2014
I have been a friend of Frank's dad for many years. I'm also an avid Buddy Holly fan/collector. In 1994 Frank, his dad and his mother came to my house for a visit. To my surprise they brought a friend of theirs, Peggy Sue Gerron. We had a wonderful chat and I showed her my Holly record collection, pictures and other memorabilia. Frank told me about his interest in Clovis and all the various artists from there, and that he was especially fascinated with Norman Petty. He borrowed several of my pictures of Holly and the Crickets to use with his research. As happens, the years started flying by and I would see Frank and his family and he would always tell me that he was working on the book and that he was sorry he hadn't gotten my pictures back to me. I assured him that those pictures were the least of my worries and that he was welcome to them as long as he needed them. A few months ago I got a call from Frank and he wanted to come by. When I answered the door, there he stood with the Petty book. He had gotten one for me and autographed it. He showed me where he'd used my pictures and even had my name in the acknowlegements. Needless to say it thrilled me to know end to see my name on the same page as many legends of the music industry. The book is a fascinating reading and shows a whole different side to the late Norman Petty. Kudos to Frank for a job well done. It was truly a labor of love on his part.
