February 3, 1959 – The day the music died

 

50 years ago today Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson crashed into a cornfield eight miles north of Clear Lake, Iowa. I wasn’t born until 1968 so no real connection with them but I’ve always liked their music and of course the Don McLean song American Pie.

Read a few interesting stories today and though I would share. Feel like blasting Peggy Sue right now but work kills that fun. Later when I’m at home going to crank up some Buddy.

The ‘Day the Music Died’ didn’t kill music – it lived and grew bigger
