The day the music died…

We’ve all heard the “Bye Bye Miss American Pie” song. Probably a good many of us have embarrassed ourselves in karaoke singing this very song! But I always wondered, when is “the day the music died” that the singer speaks of? Well, turns out it’s today! On this day in 1959, musical icons Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. “Big Bopper” Richardson all met their unfortunate death in a tragic plane crash. A sad, eerie day. R.I.P.
