My Photographic Journey Around America

Buddy Holly

This statue is dedicated to the late, great Charles Hardin Holly who the world remembers as “Buddy”. In 1955 at age 19, he opened for Elvis and would later form a band with Waylon Jennings. His biggest hits, of course, were That’ll Be The Day and Peggy Sue. Like so many, he dies too young at the age of 22. This statue is in his hometown of Lubbock, Texas.
