Lubbock Remembers "The Day The Music Died"

February 3rd is considered "the day the music died".

Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "the Big Bopper" Richardson were killed in a plane crash on February 3, 1959. Lubbock remembers its native son, each and every day with the "Buddy Holly Center." There, you'll find photos, videos and musical artifacts spanning Holly's career.

NewsChannel 11 visited with a photographer who took photos of the rock legend for a college project in 1958 and he reflected on Holly's music and its impact on rock and roll. "You could almost always whistle to it and to hear the name of a song. It sticks in your mind," says Lew Allen.

In honor of Holly's death, it's "buddy week" at the Buddy Holly Center. In other words, bring a buddy and admission is two for the price of one.
