I had no idea who Buddy Holly was until I visited the Buddy Holly center and this listened to his music. I felt a sense of appreciation after that experience. Definitely worth a visit to appreciate the artist of Lubbock.

If you are in Lubbock, you have to stop by here for a few minutes. The statue is not that great of a likeness, but it captures his personality well, and the Walk of Fame behind him is a great memorial to West Texas artists.

We wanted to go to the Buddy Holley Center, but got there to late. We walked across the street to the statue and wall of fame. It’s in a nice old downtown area and is kept up well.

The statue is right across the street from the Buddy Holly Center. You can park there free and just cross the road. The statue is a good likeness and sits in front of a wall with plaques showing other local artists names/details. Definitely worth your...More

The list of artist on the Lubbock/West Texas Hall of Fame is amazing. So many famous artists join Buddy Holley's statue across the street from his museum

We went to this because it was right across the street from the Buddy Holly Museum. As another traveler said, why not?

Unfortunately we hit town after the museum was closed, and had to leave early the next morning before they opened. BUT the huge statue was adjacent. Pretty good job and a nice tribute to Buddy.

This statue stood at the entrance of the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center for 30+ years before being removed, repair, and re-installed just west of the Buddy Holly Center.The plaza memorializes, not only Buddy Holly but Lubbock "born and raised" musicians of almost every genre.

This place was simply filler after visiting the museum, and some curiosity as to what it was. I wouldn't make the time to go visit but if you want to kill about 15 minutes, go ahead.
