WATERLOO (KWWL) -- There's a new book out about a popular icon in American history.

Gary W. Moore is touring the country with his new book about Buddy Holly titled "Hey Buddy."

Moore says he was inspired to write the book after attending a concert at the University of Northern Iowa last February with his mother-in-law.  He met some of Holly's friends along the way, including a Waterloo man known for a world famous photograph.

"Maria Lana Holly said this book cover picture was her favorite picture and that was the catalyst that pushed this into, into fame," Waterloo photographer Dick Cole said.

Moore knew very little about Holly when he started but says he learned a lot along the way.

"This a book about my journey going from Buddy Holly nothingness to awareness, to really becoming a raging fan," Gary Moore said.
