Fans rave on over Buddy.

THE musical celebrating the life of rock and roll legend, Buddy Holly, returns to Liverpool on Monday after 450 weeks on tour and it is still pulling in crowds.

Alan Janes, writer and producer of Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story, is staggered after so many UK performances it continues to be such a draw. He believes the reason is the upbeat show lifts the spirit.

He said: "I continue to be amazed and delighted by the reaction of audiences around the country. Buddy is the perfect antidote for recession depression."

It tells of three years in the 1950s when Holly, played by Glen Joseph, became the world's top recording star with hits Peggy Sue, That'll Be The Day, Oh Boy, Rave On, Heartbeat and Raining In My Heart. He died in a plane crash aged 22, but he is recognised as having changed the face of music at the end of the 50s into the 60s.?
