Lubbock, Texas – Day 3

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is still parked at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Airee #4271. I expect to be here for a couple more days.

Yesterday I drove the about eight miles to the Buddy Holly Center near downtown Lubbock. The main gallery was very nicely done containing a lot of memorabilia from Buddy’s younger days. However…no photography was allowed. Boo on them  I just do not see what the big deal is with the no photography bit is. I saw nothing in here, that if I took a photo of it and shared it with you, that would make the world come to an end. There were a number of signs reminding you of the photography and video ban. Interesting…

From what I’ve read on the Internet it’s all because of his widow Maria Elana. She owns the rights to his name, image, trademarks, and other intellectual property. It all appears she still profits financially 53 years after his death.

Here’s the official website link…

Here is a website link about his ex-wife. It states that she “did not attend the funeral and has never visited the grave site”. She also claims that she is protecting his image. There are a number of websites about his widow. Just put Maria Elana Holley in your Internet search box, read for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Interesting…

Here are some photos that I took…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

After visiting the center, I paid Buddy Holly a visit…

Enjoying the interesting museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
