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.

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