Retro New Mexico: Classic Hits Edition

Posted by on September 8, 2011 | One comment

Yesterday on what would’ve been his 75th birthday, the late great rock-n-roll music pioneer Buddy Holly received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

Home to Holly and origin of “the Crickets” is your very own Clovis, New Mexico.

New Mexico’s Own Norman Petty was the ground breaking musician, songwriter, and record producer who recorded in his home based, now world renowned Clovis Studio with the likes of Roy Orbison, Buddy Knox, Waylon Jennings, Carolyn Hester and of course Buddy Holly.

Buddy Holly and the Crickets recorded such hits as Peggy Sue, That’ll be the Day and Everyday in the Clovis studio.

Visit the studio here with widow Vi, to see where all of the above crafted some of history’s favorite music – including where Roy Orbison busted out the first renditions of Pretty Woman!
