I caught the influenza virus going around, I have been down for 3 days now. I am starting to show signs of life and will get back on this stuff soon.
I guess I can call this post The Saga of Not Fade Away. In a previous post, I talked about how much I liked Buddy Holly when I was young. I know I was around 11 or 12 years old when I bought his first record. I have 4 or 5 of his albums in storage, the original vinyl records. Anyway, I decided to just take a crack at Not Fade Away. Most of the track is one take stuff, which gives it a raw edge. It's not perfection. Perfection can make things sterile and even deprive the track of some soul. I have it finished, and it's acceptable as it is with what I have done. I am still going to give AC Myles a shot at this. I think if he gets it right, it can elevate the track even more. For now, I am giving you access to the current version with a link to my off the grid YouTube channel for fans only. The Link is below. If AC works out, I will update the version and put it on my normal YouTube channel and toss it into rotation on my show on Podomatic. Over time, I accumulate songs, and that's when I may or may not release them to the public. I already have "Something Big," in the can. It's a good one.

Buddy Holly died in a plane crash in 1959. He was only 22 years old.
