A legend comes to Gold Beach

Rockabilly music will come alive in Gold Beach
GOLD BEACH – Rockabilly music will come alive when music legend Jerry Naylor visits Gold Beach Books and Sheriff John’s Classic Cars and Happy Days Malt Shop Saturday and Sunday, April 30 and May 1.

For those old enough to remember, rock ’n’ roll was originally called rockabilly, a genre made famous by Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and other popular musicians of the 1950s.

When Holly died in a plane crash in February 1959, Texas singer and local radio disc jockey Naylor, barely out of his teens, did the unthinkable: He stepped up to the mic and into Holly’s shoes as the new lead singer of The Crickets.

The tally compares with previous auctions raising between $10,000 and $12,000, said Darla Moore, co-chair of the Safe and Sober Graduation Party planning committee.
