The Day the Music Died

truthfultruthful Member Posts: 1,953 ✭✭✭✭

February 3, 1959, 65 years ago today, was the day that Richie Vallens, Buddy Holly, and J.P. Richardson (the "Big Bopper") died in a small plane crash during an Iowa snow storm. Waylon Jennings, a young bass player at the time, gave up his seat on the plane to Richardson who was ill and instead rode to fame in the unheated tour bus.
