I met Donny when I was working with Monty Lister on Radio Merseyside…he was there to promote one of his shows…he was as nice as he seems a really great guy with time for everyone…I used this photo on my Christmas cards…from the two Donnys…..and just in case you were wondering…I’m the one on the left !!!
Tommy Allsup played most of the guitar solos on Buddy Holly’s records.Although he is a highly respected session man and has featured on numerous hits he is best known as the man who flipped the coin to see who got the last seat on Buddy Holly’s ill-
and the rest,as they say,is history.
Tommy still carried the coin……sadly no longer with us.
