Phil Everly To Speak At Buddy Holly Walk Of Fame Induction
Twenty-five years after being among the very first recording artists inducted into Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the late Lubbock recording artist Charles Hardin "Buddy" Holly finally will be honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The star unveiling ceremony for Holly will take place at 11:30 a.m. (Pacific Standard) on September 7, 2011, the 75th anniversary of Holly's birth.
Holly's star will be located near those of the Beatles, and Phil Everly and Peter Asher will be speaking at the unveiling ceremony. The Everly Brothers toured extensively with Buddy Holly and Holly credited The Everly Brothers with changing his style from Levis and tee shirts to their style of suits. Buddy Holly wrote the song "Wishing" for the brothers. Phil Everly was a pallbearer at Holly's funeral. Don could not attend stating, "I couldn't go to the funeral. I couldn't go anywhere. I just took to my bed."
