The Day the Music Died

Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. Many credit Holly as being the most influential musician of early rock and roll even though his success lasted only a year and a half. The Beatles, especially Paul McCartney, praise Holly as one of the main reasons they ever got into music. Below is a live performance of Buddy Holly and the Crickets singing "Peggy Sue".
