My son in law and I arrived at the Buddy Holly and West Texas walk of fame on Cricket Avenue in Lubbock just after 10am and firstly crossed the street to see the Buddy Holly Statue and the Walk of Fame memorials amongst whom were Roy Orbison of whom I am a great fan and Dan Blocker from the Ponderosa days as an actor. There were a number of names on the plaques behind the statue not all of whom I knew but included the Crickets his group for a short time in reality. We then crossed to the museum with songs from Buddy playing as we approached the main door. Inside we were greeted by two ladies who gave us a briefing on what was in the museum. We paid our $5 dollars entry and proceeded to watch a film of about 30 minutes on the life of Buddy and his achievements up to the terrible night when he was killed along with the Big Bopper and Ricky Valance plus of course the pilot. Many well known stars attribute their musical development to Buddy including the Beatles, Rolling Stones and many others. We then proceeded into the history artifacts section amongst which were many personal items of Buddy's from the time he was a young boy through his life. In the other section of the facility were the walk of fame pictures etc.
It was well worth the visit and gave a clear insight to the legend that is Buddy Holly.
