This Day in History

On this day in history, Buddy Holly and Bob Montgomery opened for Elvis Presley in Lubbock, Texas in 1955. This was one of the highlights of Holly's very short career, and was one of the things that really started him off as a rock and roll frontman. While he had already been getting airtime on various radio stations, Elvis was a huge influence on the younger musician, and would propell him into fame as one of the greatest rock & roll singers of all time.
