On hand for the dedication ceremony were Phil Everly (of the Everly Brothers), Holly’s wife, Maria Elena Holly, and Gary Busey. The actor played the singer in the biopic “The Buddy Holly Story” and was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe for the role.

Holly, who along with the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens died in a plane crash at age 22, is now the 2,447th celebrity to be honored with a star.

That same evening, Stevie Nicks, Chris Isaak and other musicians performed in a tribute concert at the Music Box Theater.
