The Day the Music Died

Today, February 3 marks the 53rd anniversary of the deaths of icons Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.

I love this video and especially the words the lady says at the beginning about how controversial this "rock and roll" music is and how people need to be open-minded about it. I wonder what they'd think about music now?

I've always under-appreciated Buddy Holly because, being from Lubbock, his music has been shoved down my throat my entire life. I only recently learned how monumental his music was in creating many genres of music that exist today and starting many trends in his short career, and for that I am very thankful.

Rest in peace Buddy!
