Rave On Buddy Holly
Rave On Buddy Holly the tribute album is finally getting released. If you've been here before you will know I'm a lifetime Buddy Holly fan. He and Elvis were my two youthful heroes. In fact his was the first concert I ever went to.
So I've been looking forward with anticipation and some trepidation. The trepidation because Paul McCartney and Kid Rock are included. But I'm loving the Florence and the Machine track.
I just love the New Orleans feel Florence and co add to this track. Really a different spin, not playing by rote. Awesome!
Not Fade Away - Florence and The Machine
Here' an EPK regarding the album, just to tease your taste buds.
Check out the EPK for RAVE ON BUDDY HOLLY, the new Buddy Holly tribute album featuring Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys, Paul McCartney, Cee Lo Green, My Morning Jacket, Modest Mouse, Fiona Apple & Jon Brion, Kid Rock, Patti Smith, Lou Reed, & many more!

The inimitable Cee Lo gets it right between the Buddy or the Elvis version.
