Lubbock's greatest export. It's incredible how many great songs he had in such a short life. Would the Beatles have existed without Buddy Holly? How much more great music would he have produced?

Just a thought.

Buddy Holly was truly a legendary performer, and the world lost a great pioneer in that plane crash in Iowa.

Holly had a fantastic career ahead of him-----he was a pioneer and could have gone on to produce and record many more great albums and hit songs. It is a shame the world was robbed of his great talent and skill.

We still miss you Buddy-------the great artists of rock n roll, especially the groups of the 60s--70s-and 80s always refer to Holly as a great inspiration.

Lubbock should be proud of Buddy.

I was just at the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock a few weeks ago. Great place. They had several videos of the "Big Bopper." to view.

I think Buddy would have cut a few more albums, then go more into producing albums. Either way, he had a talent for both.

It was a loss.

I believe he had it in his long-term plans to make Lubbock the HQ of his future music producing company. Lubbock would be a very different place if that would have happened. I think it's cool that even 40 years after he made his music, it's still relevant and looked to for inspiration.

@Cowboybootnut: Did you go to one of the free concerts they have on Thursdays at the Buddy Holly Center?

Unfortunately we did not have much time in Lubbock, so the center was all that we saw. We were travelling from Palo Duro Canyons to Carlsbad Caverns.

I think you are spot on about Lubbock if Buddy Holly would not have died. There was a lot of talent that was lost in the plane crash. The Big Bopper is credited with coining the term "music videos."

Anyone here ever place a guitar pick on Buddy Holly's grave at the City of Lubbock Cemetery? Buddy has a very modest tombstone there and I have left two picks there at different times. To place a guitar pick on the grave is to hope that the music should live on.

Sad to think of such a talent dying so young.
