Rock & Roll Mysteries
Based on an original story by Peggy Sue!
During the early years of rock and roll many gifted young men and women rocketed to fame and fortune. Sadly, many of them were not around years later due to various scandals, manipulations, plots, mysterious deaths, and other unusual circumstances.
Our stars disappeared right out of the sky.
What was the role of greedy record producers, the U.S. Government, Mobsters, and even powerful Cults who had rock and roll musicians under their microscope with their criticism of the “unholy Devil's Music?”
Peggy Sue Gerron was in the middle of the rock and roll storm as it was happening. Join her on a musical journey through the 1950's, as some of the most talented rock and roll stars quickly rose, and then mysteriously disappeared or faded away - never to be heard from again. Learn about some of the rampant rumors, the conspiracy theories, and the manipulations, plots, and mysteries that nearly put an end to rock & roll before it even had a chance to fully blossom.

WHO IS BUDDY HOLLY?
Buddy Holly was an American singer-songwriter and a pioneer of rock and roll. It is a generally accepted fact that he is the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll. Holly was among the first group of inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is considered one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
WHAT HAPPENED TO BUDDY HOLLY?
In January, 1959 Buddy Holly was the top act on the Winter Dance Party tour. Because of a falling out with his bandmates in the Fall of 1958, Holly assembled a backing band consisting of Tommy Allsup (guitar), Waylon Jennings (bass) and Carl Bunch (drums), and billed them as "The Crickets."
Following a performance at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa, on February 2, 1959, Holly chartered a small airplane to take him to the next stop on the tour. Holly, Richie Valens, and J.P. Richardson (the “Big Bopper”) and the pilot were killed en route to Moorhead, Minnesota, when their plane crashed soon after taking off from nearby Mason City in the early morning hours of February 3.
WHO IS PEGGY SUE?
Peggy Sue Gerron was born on June 15th, 1940, in Olton, Texas, and grew up in Lubbock, Texas. She was a high school senior when she was cast into the international spotlight by Buddy Holly's release of the namesake song that climbed to the top of 1957 Billboard Charts. The rest is musical history.
Following graduation from high school, Peggy Sue became a member of the Crickets "family" when she and the group's drummer, Jerry Allison, were married. She shared in the dreams and extraordinary success of Buddy Holly and the Crickets. Unfortunately, she also had to share in the ultimate tragedy—the day the music died.
Vivacious and charming, her infectious personality captivates audiences at conventions, trade shows, collectors shows, music festivals, universities and corporate functions with her unique behind-the scenes stories and vignettes of the music and musicians of that magical era.

This isn't the sort of thing we normally announce, but we have recently been hired by a handful of incredible clients to create some complex Alternative Reality Games that will ultimately (hopefully) generate attention to benefit their products and services.
As many know, since 1999, the Campfire Network's team has been hired by many high-profile (and many anonymous!) clients throughout the world to design and implement elaborate, deliberate, and sometimes sensational A.R.G.s, red herrings, spoofs, satirical subverting, culture-jamming, guerrilla communications, and good-natured rumors, hoaxes, practical jokes, pranks, and April Fool's Day events. We, and our clients, create, propagate, entrench, and operate in the spirit of fun with the aim of either generating publicity, or educating and increasing awareness of political and social issues, as well as maintaining a mode of checks and balances, so that folks periodically realize that they should not always believe everything they see, hear, and/or read.
We just uploaded the 60 minute version to YouTube. This is the version that was a smashing success at the film festivals throughout 2012. Check it out here. We have a 6 hour version, and a 3 hour version, and we are polishing a 90 minute version. They will be distributed soon to all those awesome places where you typically watch great films! Until then ... check this out. Enjoy!
