See here: Rock Vets Remember 'The Day The Music Died' and here: The Day the Music Died - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I thought about starting this thread with some comments about their music and their influence, but words don't ever do justice in situations like this. Suffice it to say, I've always been a fan of all three of them, especially Buddy Holly. May they rest in peace and may their memory always live on through their music.

(BTW, this is definitely a Music forum thread, and not something for the Member's Lounge.)

Hard to believe that this thread didn't get any air time here... oh well, a sign of the times, I guess.

I'm too young to know much about stuff this old, sorry Wayne

I'm not much of a history/music history buff either so that doesn't help.

I've seen the movie, "La Bamba," but I didn't know that the song, American Pie, was related to the death of those 3 musicians until the radio mentioned something about it yesterday.

Wherever the music takes me
Bah! Sure it was a tragic and sad event way back when. But by no means did the music ever die. Long live their music and all the good music now and beyond.

. My favorite was Buddy Holly as well. I often wondered what types of music he would have made... Can't believe that it's been that long.

Ever see the movie 'The Buddy Holly Story' with Gary Busey? That's the definite Buddy Holly movie and is a must see for all music lovers no matter what age you are. This is one of the bands that gave birth to Rock and Roll so is very important in the history of music.



The Buddy Holly Story (1978)

I have some Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens in my collection. Los Lobos did a great version of La Bamba too.


The Beatles were influenced by Buddy Holly and the Crickets and is why they named themselves The Beatles.
