Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

If anyone knows Maria Elena Holly, the widow of Buddy who happens to live in the Turtle Creek area, they might wanna pass along this exceptional find: Eric Clapton covering the Lubbock legend's immortal songs "Maybe Baby" and "Peggy Sue," both of which have never been released despite sounding, well, like the best things Eric Clapton's done since he was, ya know, God.

And if you do talk to Ms. Holly, ask her how that lawsuit's going, while yer at it. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
