Pickin' With Buddies



It has become a tradition for fans visiting the grave of Buddy Holley to leave a little something behind.  As such, it has become a place to say "thank you" for those closest to you and the blessings in life. This often takes the form of guitar picks (plectrums) featuring initials.

Colorado Bob who despite the name is a loyal Texan and resident of Lubbock has been leading the drive to buy Shelter Boxes for Haiti. This video was produced as a way to say thank you to his mother who taught him to give back to others and to all those involved in making what was a modest beginning into an overwhelming success.

Jamie, I remember when Buddy Holly died, a very sad day... I was born in 1944 (I knew you were born that year too) I was born May 25. :)

The various ways people have chosen to support the people of Haiti after the earthquake have been inspiring.
