Lubbock Music Legend Remembered In Clovis

NewsChannel 11 went to Clovis, New Mexico, Thursday for the unveiling of a very special historical marker.

The Norman Petty Recording Studio is where Lubbock rock legend Buddy Holly recorded his now world famous "That'll Be The Day". Today an historic marker commemorates that and along with music legends of the past was Travis Holley, Buddy's brother.

"I think it's quite an honor and not to take anything away from Norman Petty, but Buddy was the one that sold the records, but Norman gave Buddy a very good start," Holley said.

It's interesting to point out that Friday is Buddy Holly's birthday and for Holly family this is part of a birthday celebration set to begin with Clovis Music Festival.

The festival begins Thursday night and goes through Saturday.
