Unseen Buddy Holly At Proud Gallery
13 Jan 2009
What is being called the ‘greatest collection of unseen Buddy Holly images ever compiled’ is to go on display later this month at Proud Central, London. It coincides with the 50th anniversary of Holly’s death. His career spanned just 18 months, yet his work is cited as revolutionising rock ‘n’ roll and inspiring bands such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.
The exhibition features the photographs of Lew Allen amongst others, whose exclusive shots of Holly along with Elvis and many others makes up the signed limited edition book, ELVIS & THE BIRTH OF ROCK
. Editor Mike McCartney has signed every copy. For more information on this title click here.
The exhibition at the Proud Central gallery runs from 29th January to 26th April 2009. More information can be found on their website, www.proud.co.uk
