Letter To Steve Hodges

October 27, 1995

Steve Hodges The Dalles, Oregon

Dear Steve:

I am the singer of Weezer and the writer of BUDDY HOLLY.  I only just now received your request dated March 23, 1995.  If you're still interested, you have my full permission to arrange and play BUDDY HOLLY.   I gained much from my involvement in my high school music department and would be happy and honored to be able to return this small favor.

I am now a music major at Harvard University.  Although I haven't yet begun the study of orchestration, I would love to have a copy of your arrangement and a cassette of the performance (quality isn't important).

Please protect my privacy as I'm a hermit by nature.

Good luck transcribing our out-of-tune vocals.
