Buddy Holly Feb 3 1959 The Day The Music Died

On a cold winter's night a small private plane took off from Clear Lake, Iowa bound for Fargo, N.D. It never made its destination.

When that plane crashed, it claimed the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P. "Big Bopper" Richardson and the pilot, Roger Peterson. Three of Rock and Roll's most promising performers were gone. As Don McLean wrote in his classic music parable, American Pie, it was "the day the music died."



sigh.................

A very sad day indeed! I love Buddy's song, "Peggy Sue" very much.

Patsy Cline was not on that plane. This was only a four passenger plane and all four passengers were accounted for. And I have never heard any connection between Buddy Holly and Patsy Cline. Many musicians have credited being influnced by Buddy Holly, but Patsy was not one of them. Some musicians that claim the Buddy Holly had an impact on their musical development include John Lennon, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones (in fact the Stones very first American hit was a cover of Buddy's, Not Fade Away), Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Mellencamp, Ric Ocasek, and Bruce Springstein.

Buddy Holly is considered one of the most influencial founding fathers of Rock 'n Roll.

And Sush, please do not be sad. Just put on some of his music and DANCE!

The immortal Patsy bought it in another plane crash.

Waylon Jennings was a young sideman back then and got off the plane to give his seat to one of the other guys (sorry, I forget who - maybe The Bopper).

Article in the paper the other day says they're going to exhume The Bopper's remains because there's a question about a shooting aboard the plane. The B's body was found much farther away from the wreckage than the others.

Beth's right - don't dwell on the details but honor their memories by puttin' the tunes on and dancing!

Oh, muddy, you make me cry. "Crazy" and "I Fall to Pieces." They don't get much better than that!!! Loved Patsy.

As for oldies. Yeah, the dancin' thing.

One of our area stations just reformatted to an oldies station that plays '60s, '70s and only a smattering of '80s tunes. I have spent hours groovin' and Buck and I have even been found dancin' in the kitchen while the pasta cooks.

We honor their memory as we dip and dance.
