PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Pioneering rock 'n' roller Buddy Holly posthumously received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday (September 7) on the 75th anniversary of his birth. Holly's widow, Maria Elena Holly, accepted the honor on his behalf in the ceremony in front of the Capitol Records building on Vine Street. SOUNDBITE Maria Elena Holly saying (English): "I know Buddy is looking down and saying thanks to all of you, for bestowing this honor." The 22-year-old Holly was killed, along with fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper on Feb. 3, 1959, when the private plane they were on crashed in an Iowa cornfield as they were heading to a perform. Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers, who played several shows together with Holly, was among those on hand to talk about the late singer. SOUNDBITE Singer Phil Everly saying (English); "He's influenced so many people, it's just unbelievable. And I know everybody is as proud as I am to see this happen finally, it's true." In the 18 months from when Buddy Holly and the Crickets hit the charts with "That'll be the Day" to his death, Holly had 27 Top 40 hits worldwide. John Russell, Reuters.
