Approx. 18,530 words.
Published on January 30, 2012.
This is a short biography of Tinker Carlen, a guitarist and singer in the world-famous Cricket band. It is a story of the origin of the Crickets and Tinker's involvement from the very beginning when Tinker, Buddy Holley, and other young musicians got together to "make music and entertain."
It is Tinker's story, not a copy of anything that's been written about the evolution of the Crickets.
