In just three short years, like Elvis, Buddy Holly set the music world on fire, helping mold what would become rock 'n' roll. Buddy Holly opened for Elvis three times in Lubbock and Elvis let Holly use his own personal guitar in one of the concerts. Buddy Holly often credits his move from country music to rockabilly to Elvis and seeing him perform live.
