Not Fade Away: 75 Years of Buddy Holly


Today is Buddy Holly’s 75th birthday! Really one of the only claims to fame that Lubbock has, Buddy Holly would have been 75 today if he had survived the plane crash that killed him before he was 23.

Celebrate today by:

Chilling with Gary Busey: “Before he really lost it, the toothy actor was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in 1978’s The Buddy Holly Story Fellow gawky and bespectacled rocker Marshall Crenshaw played Holly in the Ritchie Valens biopic La Bamba
