Charles Hardin "Buddy" Holley was born in Lubbock in 1936. He was nicknamed "Buddy" because, as his mother once confided, "Charles Hardin was just too long a name for such a little boy." As a child, he showed a quick aptitude for music, taking violin and piano lessons, and later steel guitar lessons, before losing interest. It wasn't until brother Travis returned from the Marine Corps with a $15 pawnshop Harmony that Buddy took up guitar. Recalls Travis, "I taught him a few basic chords - - G,C,D,A,E, and before long he was telling me, 'No, Travis, you're playing it wrong, it should go like this.'"

In his brief time he recorded a hugely influential body of work that inspired future stars like the Beatles and Bob Dylan. Holly himself had been inspired at the age of 18 by seeing Elvis Presley perform, and had soon won himself a contract with Decca Records. With a backing band called The Crickets, Holly wrote hits like the chart-topping "That'll Be The Day", and "Peggy Sue". Despite his death, he had recorded so prolifically that Decca were able to continue releasing new Holly material for many years.

That Buddy Holly and The Crickets could make it all sound so easy that any high-school garage band could play right along is a testament to their genius. Holly’s trademark "chord lead" style of rhythmic guitar playing can be heard in every rock ‘n roll band since, from the Beatles to the kids next door.

For musicians, his spirit and creativity remain basic lessons on how rock ‘n roll music should be played. The enormous joy that his music still brings is an inspiration for why it is worthwhile to do so. His friend Sonny Curtis expressed it best when he said that Buddy Holly lives whenever rock ‘n roll is played.

"Holly's melodies and arrangements were a huge influence on the Beatles. With the whirlwind they were on in 1964, the first thing John Lennon asked when he got to The Ed Sullivan Show was, "Is this the stage that Buddy Holly played on?" That shows a lot of quiet admiration. Listen to the songs on the first three Beatles albums. Take their voices off, and it's Buddy Holly. Same with the Rolling Stones." - John Mellencamp, Rolling Stone
