From Facebook – “Today is a very special day for a man who for many years has been very dear to me. Unquestionably, of all the things that would have humbled and amazed Buddy as people have celebrated his legacy over the years, the enduring success of The Beatles and the continuing testament of that leading light of popular music Sir Paul McCartney, would be amongst his proudest achievements.

From That’ll Be The Day being The Quarrymen’s first demo song, to the Beatles very name, their musical style, the beautiful renditions they made of many of Buddy’s songs and in later years the wonderful Buddy Holly Weeks that Sir Paul planned and hosted on either side of the Atlantic, no one has celebrated my late husband more.

Buddy’s songs were so beautiful that I feel they would always have stood the test of time, but they still needed new artists to keep them alive and vibrant, and Paul did just that, with the Beatles, as a soloist, and introducing them to the next generation, who were curious to learn about their hero’s own inspiration.

As Paul celebrates his 80th birthday, I feel inclined to celebrate his remarkable feats through over 60 years in music. Forever a world renowned artist, it is still quite amazing that as an octogenarian he now prepares to headline the Glastonbury Festival in 6 days time, and through it all he has remained very publicly a Buddy Holly fan to his core.

Happy Birthday 80th Paul, and thank you for the music, and your enduring love for Buddy.

Maria Elena Holly”
