Terrific monument to Buddy who sadly died far too young. The area is immaculately clean and well kept. Loved reading all the famous names along the wall. Amazing how much influence Buddy made on others particularly The Beatles. A visit to the centre across the road is a must, great value.

Visit the Buddy Holly Museum, then walk across the street to his statue. Here you will see Lubbock's music history. After our visit we walked another block to the Depot District for lunch.

Lubbock is the Home of Buddy Holly. The museum has lots of his recordings and memorabilia. Once a month during the summer there are concerts on the plaza near the statue. Love to walk the museum and hear his ground breaking tunes.

Nice, clean area where we took a few pictures with the statue of Buddy and the family. It was worth the walk across the street from the Buddy Holly Center.

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.
