Norman Petty Studios is a time warp. This studio was where Buddy Holly recorded the vast majority of his music. It is exactly the way it was left after the "Rock and Roll" was recorded in the 50's.

Had a private, 1 hour tour of the place. Everything has been left as it was in the 50's. Really a cool place to see.
