Book: Buddy Holly

Chapter: After the Day the Music Died: Memorializing

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.20108


The chapter discusses the memorialization of Buddy Holly following his death and the way in which his postumous career unfolded, contending that Holly’s posthumous career has been the combined and often conflictual and contradictory product of a variety of human and institutional agencies in an actor network that established itself after February 1959.
