2011 tribute to the legendary Rock ‘n’ Roll pioneer, released as part of a year-long celebration, on the eve of Holly’s 75th birthday celebration. Produced by the Grammy Award-winning Peter Asher, who assembled a very diverse group of artists to record their favorite Buddy Holly songs, he encouraged each artist to add their own artistic signature to their recording. Rock legends such as Ringo Starr, Brian Wilson, Jeff Lynne, Stevie Nicks and Jackson Browne are joined by contemporary artists Zooey Deschanel, Eric Idle, Chris Isaak, The Fray, Patrick Stump, Cobra Starship, Imelda May, Natalie Merchant, and Pat Monahan. Each offers their own unique take on some of Holly’s timeless classics.
