Awesome Memorial

What an awesome Memorial and tribute to some of the best musicians to come out of the State of Texas. I was really impressed with how much the statue looked like Buddy Holly.

The statue of Buddy is a great likeliness of him. I was really amazed at all the artist and celebrities noted on the wall that came from the Lubbock area! Please don't pass this up when you visit Lubbock.

This was a great tribute to a legend. The West Texas Walk of Fame was interesting. They need to have Holly's music playing.

Great venue. Loved the gallery as well. We were able to see the whole gallery in about an hour. They told us they were expanding into the rest of the building shortly.

Ok I like Buddy and it was worth the stop for us. Plenty of parking at the Buddy Holly Center across the street which we did not visit.

This is directly across the street from the Buddy Holly Center. The statue of Buddy Holly is awesome and who wouldn't want a photo of you next to him?

This park is a nice tribute to Buddy Holly and those that knew him. We enjoyed it. It is across the street from Buddy Holly Center and you can walk to this park from there.

A simple monument to one of our outstanding entertainers cut short in the prime of his life. The plaques around the wall behind the statue are of extreme interest as well. Only takes a few minutes to visit and is just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center.

TXBohemian visited late on a frozen Lubbock night to pay tribute to a true pioneer of rock and roll. Stop by, and remember an innovator that died too young, but left a lasting mark on Rock and Roll.
