When will kids of today’s generation realize that this was where real music began??? It really is sad that the music industry went from this to being obsessed with pop, rap and country that doesn’t even sound country.
Anyhow, that was a tragic day Feb. 3rd, 1959.
Ritchie Valens career was short-lived but if Ritchie didn’t get on that plane and lived, just imagine how huge Ritchie’s career would have been? I’m sure Ritchie would have been just as big as Elvis.
I love Buddy and Ritchie… love the Big Bopper too but haven’t listened to too much music of his. Buddy and Ritchie were my heroes though, love both of them.
