Eric Clapton Covers Buddy Holly

...oh, oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore.

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
