It is the final resting place of buddy holly! The tradition is to leave a pick so the music lives on! Just outside the cemetery is a field filled with prairie dogs. We went from a very sad pilgrimage to the joy of the prairie...More

Some people love an old graveyard, like me, and some people are Buddy Holly fanatics willing to travel 5000 miles to pay homage to their musical hero. Like me. Therefore I wont try to describe the emotion felt, short of saying it was a lovely...More

That's it. Nothing spectacular. If you are from Lubbock, having family buried there, I imagine it is an entirely different experience. But then, what do you expect? It's a cemetery.

Worth the drive. Small, hometown grave site. Emotional and a small insight to American Rock and Roll history.

We expected it to be a bit more busy upon our arrival, it was actually very pleasant, quaint and quiet all around us, easy to get to and just much easier than expected.

No trip to Lubbock would be complete without a trip to this Lubbock Landmark that is the final resting place of Buddy Holly (Holley). A memorable visit, and worthy of a trip for any music buff.

Suprised at how small and unassuming this grave is compared with others nearby. Cemetry well laid out and grave is sign posted.
