Overview

February 3, 1959: At 1 AM, a Cadillac is stolen in Clear Lake, Iowa. Unknown to the thief, a set of tapes lie hidden in the trunk. Five days later in Southern California, a drag race will decide the fate of Buddy Holly's final recording. Will the music live or die?

This story begins the day the music died. It's like riding shotgun in a 1950's whodunit. You can smell the fuel burning, quench your thirst with an ice cold Coca-Cola and feel the raw power of classic Detroit muscle screaming from the pages. The Last Rock and Roll Show flawlessly blends the details of the fateful night we lost some of rock's true pioneers with an original tale of teenage dreams gone wrong. The Last Rock and Roll Show is the kind of historical fiction music fans live for.

    Fluttershy's house

    A small tree close to the ground. Has two stories and a small balcony on each side of the top story. Both bedrooms are small, one big enough for a dresser a bed and two end tables. The other big enough for the same and a pet bed. The living room was well furnished. Cookbooks, birdhouses, a tiny hole in the wall. The kitchen was small, a mess of herbs and leaves. There was little pureblood prey. Plenty of rabbits and squirrels and mice voles and birds hung around. There was also a sign that said 'DO NOT KILL THE ANIMALS' on the lawn.

    Buy your ticket

    This is an enjoyable period tale about a Midwestern teen who runs away to Hollywood to become a movie star in a stolen Cadillac. Unknown to him is the bootleg recording in the trunk featuring performances by the Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens, and Buddy Holly. Their last concert before the day the music died. The two teens that attended the show and made the tapes immediately set out to find and recover the car and its precious cargo. Hot chicks, an unscrupulous chop shop operator, a far out pirate disc jockey, and crooked FCC feds are all part of this fast moving road tale. It all comes down to a climactic drag race featuring Stacey David’s Rat Roaster.

    I often lament the fact that there is a serious lack of hot rod, custom, or muscle car fiction out there. Believe it or not car guys can read. There’s a huge untapped market out there for stories like this one.

    For a first time author, Danny White tells an absorbing story. I found this one hard to put down. I look forward to more from him in the future.

    If 50’s hot rods, rock n roll, GearZ , and sticking it to the man get your motor revved up, then I highly recommend you buy your ticket to the last rock and roll show.

    Most Highly Recommended for any car guy or gal

    This is such a great story. You will be rivited to it from the moment you pick it up and start on page one. If you are from Southern California and were around back in the late 50's and 60's you will particularly enjoy it because it takes place in some familiar places if you were part of the car culture back then. It is without a doubt the best story I've ever read that involved cars and rock N' roll. Trust me when I tell you that you won't be disappointed with this book!!
