Don McLean called the events of 56 years ago "The Day the Music Died."
I'm flying to Lubbock later this morning to pay my respects.
RIP Buddy Holly.
UPDATE: I went with my friend John. It was a wonderful experience, I enjoyed the center and the nice people of Lubbock. I've posted a few photos.
UPDATE 2: Both my mother and Margaret informed me of this story in today's news, regarding the possible reopening of the investigation into Buddy's plane crash. I'm not sure the benefits of looking into it again, so far in the past. I would think the US authorities have better things to do with their time.
