Buddy Holly

Like Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly missed out on Grammy recognition because his hits came before the Grammys even existed. A pioneer of rock 'n' roll in the 1950s for songs like "That'll Be the Day," "Peggy Sue" and "Oh Boy!", Holly died at age 22 in 1959. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award almost 40 years after his death.
