Day The Music Died!

I wanted to take some time this week on my syndicated radio show to remember back. To many of us, this was the week that, according to the lyrics in Don McLean’s famous song, “¦ the infamous “day the music died”. Fifty-seven years ago on February 3rd, the great Buddy Holly died in a terrible plane crash. It was an early tragedy in rock music, but it sure wasn’t the last. Buddy was a Texas boy who changed the world of music for all of us. He died with to other music icons of the 60s, Richie Valens and J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper). Just a few years later came Glenn Frey who formed The Eagles. I’ve loved this group for many years and always reminds me to never give up living care free life. Glenn died last week at 67. Check out belowWaylon Jennings talking about the death of Holly and others.
