The day the music died

Today is the 48th anniversary of the death of Buddy Holly.

Buddy Holly, 22, Jiles P Richardson – known as the Big Bopper – 28, and Ritchie Valens, 17, died in a crash shortly after take-off from Clear Lake, Iowa at 0100 local time.

In 1990, it looked like Don’s daughter would be born on this day but, avoiding an amazing coincidence, she actually arrived on Feb 4th and will be 17 tomorrow. (ref: pge 282)
