Stevie Nicks - Stevie Nicks & Paul Anka Honour Buddy Holly On Late Star's 75th Birthday

Stevie Nicks, Paul Anka and Chris Isaak were among the stars who came together for a 75th birthday tribute to late rock 'n' roller Buddy Holly in Hollywood on Wednesday night (07Sep11).
Members of Cobra Starship, Boz Scaggs, Lyle Lovett and Graham Nash also performed, while Holly's widow Maria Elena and Priscilla Presley were among those who offered up anecdotes at the Music Box Theater celebration, which was organised by singer Peter Asher.
The concert, which featured tracks from new tribute album Listen to Me, was filmed for a U.S. TV special, which will air in December (11).
Asher and Isaak co-hosted the celebration, which featured video greetings from Holly superfans Brian Wilson, Keith Richards, Ringo Starr and Jackson Browne.
Nicks performed Not Fade Away and It's So Easy; Lovett offered renditions of Well... All Right and I'm Looking for Someone to Love; Nash covered Raining in My Heart and Take Your Time with Asher, and Rave On with Scaggs and Asher.
Other highlights included Michelle Branch and Chris Isaak's duet on Heartbeat, Gabe Saporta and Victoria Asher of Cobra Starship's take on Peggy Sue, and Paul Anka's I Guess It Doesn't Matter Anymore.
The evening closed with a jam of That'll Be The Day led by Everly Brothers star Phil Everly.
