It was the day the music died. On February 3, 1959, American rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and "The Big Bopper" J. P. Richardson were all killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa.

We remember them today on what later became known as "The Day the Music Died".

Buddy Holly was the single most influential creative force in early Rock & Roll, with a string of classics that only ended with his tragic death at 22.

They say the good die young and talented younger. I began my career as a student intern or The Washington Post. But my first really great paying job was at NBC, NY, where I worked for nearly a decade. I was there the night he died.

Years later I took one of my journalism college classes to Strawberry Fields on the 30 anniversary of his death.

What ever happened to the good old days? We went from kids sitting on Santa’s lap to children writing to Santa’s new laptop.

Early representations and without a laptop of the jolly gift-giver from Church history and folklore, notably St Nicholas, merged with the English Father Christmas to create the mythical character known to Americans and the rest of the English-speaking world as "Santa Claus" a phonetic derivation of "Sinterklaas" in Dutch.

A Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes. Published in two parts, in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age.

Measured as an idealist, he has been a military man and seen terrible things. He learns that the world is generally harsh and unforgiving.

The message is of hope and chivalry. To Dream, the Impossible Dream is undoubtedly the best known and represents the ideals of the gentleman as well as the knight.
