Rolling Stone Magazine/Newspaper-September 21,1978. This vintage Rolling Stone-which originally sold for $1.00-features a color cover photo of Gary Busey as he starred in "The Buddy Holly Story" plus an article with photos.Gary Busey was nominated for an Oscar for his first lead role in 1978's The Buddy Holly Story, but modern audiences know him more for portraying wild-eyed villains in such films as Lethal Weapon (1987, starring Mel Gibson) and Point Break (1991, starring Keanu Reeves). Raised in Oklahoma, Busey went to Hollywood in the late 1960s as a drummer in a rock band. In the early '70s he started working in the movies, earning small parts in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974, starring Clint Eastwood) and A Star is Born (1976, starring Barbra Streisand). Then his performance as rock legend Buddy Holly made him a star. In the '80s Busey's career nearly took a backseat to his out-of-control personal life, but by the '90s he had survived a near-fatal motorcycle accident, cancer surgery and drug addiction to come out the other side a "born again" Christian and a hard-working character actor. In addition to roles in The Firm (1993), Lost Highway (1997) and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Busey has done voice work for the video game Grand Theft Auto and starred in Comedy Central's I'm With Busey (2003), a "reality" show capitalizing on Busey's famously oddball behavior.The Rolling Stone has been autographed on the front cover by Gary Busey............BOTH ROLLING STONE AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
