Buddy Holly Wife

The telephone at the Surf Ballroom where Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens made their last calls. (Holly called his wife, Maria Elena, and Valens spoke to his brother, Robert Morales.)

Buddy Holly and wife María Elena on their wedding day, August 15, 1958. He asked her out two weeks after she started work as a receptionist for music publisher Peermusic. She had never been out on a date and told Holly he would have to ask her aunt for permission. Holly promptly got her aunt's permission. Five hours into their first date, Buddy handed a rose to Maria and asked her to marry him. They were married less than two months later, in Buddy's hometown of Lubbock, Texas.

10 Historic Restaurants Worth Visiting

FRAUNCES TAVERN: New York, New York Open since: 1762 George Washington wined and dined his lieutenants in a formal farewell to his troops at Fraunces Tavern in 1783, which is why the restaurant, and attached museum, have a soft spot for the US’s first president. The menu says GW’s favorite was the pot pie, and a series of portraits of the great man adorn an entire gallery. There’s even a collection of early American flags inside.

Buddy Holly Peggy Sue 1950 First time I heard Buddy sing was several years after his death. My brother had the record and I swiped it, still have it. I was into the Beatles and the Stones, but Buddy was a hold different can of beans. Love that sound.
