Since opening in 1999, the Buddy Holly Center has worked to preserve the legacy of Buddy Holly’s very short, but impactful musical career. In just 18 months, Buddy’s new and unique style of music helped define rock-and-roll and influenced artists such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Elton John. In 1986, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as number 13 on its list of “100 Greatest Artists.” On his 75thbirthday, Buddy was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Today, the Buddy Holly Center receives visitors from all 50 states and 33 foreign countries. We continue to celebrate his legacy through programs such as Buddy’s Birthday Bash, The Day the Music Died, commemorating the plane crash that took his life, and The Summer Showcase Concert Series, a series of summer concerts that showcase the best of independent singer/songwriters.
