The Day the Music Died
Posted January 28, 2009on:
Another day of historical relevance is coming up in the world of music. Most people see February 2nd as the day to celebrate Groundhog Day, the day to decide whether to spend two more months wrapped in a Snuggie or to get the summer wardrobe out of mothballs. Those who love rock and roll music will always remember this as the day the music died. Buddy Holly, J.P. Richardson and Ritchie Valens all ended up dead in a tragic crash in an Iowa corn field 50 years ago.
Apparently many music fans plan to visit the site to honour their memory. I would prefer to remember them for the legacy of their music.
