3. Today marks 61 years since ‘The Day the Music Died’

It was this day in 1959 that rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens 

and JP Richardson, along with pilot Roger Peterson, were killed in a plane crash. 

It’s one of the darkest days in music history and was even dubbed as 

“The Day the Music Died in Don MacLean’s song ‘American Pie’.

The comment of Joe Johnson leads us to his page on Beatles Brunchradio with the article about Buddy's death.
