Picture of the Day
On February 3,1959, Buddy Holly was killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa. He chartered a Beechcraft Bonanza to get to the next location for the "Winter Dance Party" tour because the buses were regularly breaking down and had poor heating systems. This affected the performers on the tour with cases of flu and even frostbite.
There was room for 2 more, so Ritchie Valens and "the Big Bopper" JP Richardson came as well. Richardson was on board because he had the flu and Valens won a coin toss.
Soon after takeoff, in poor wintry conditions late at night, the pilot lost control of the light airplane. All on board, including the pilot, were killed.
Buddy's wife, Maria Elena, learned of her husband's death from a TV news report. They had only been married for six months. She was pregnant at the time and suffered a miscarriage shortly after. Buddy Holly was 22.
As he was not married, Ritchie left behind his mother. Ritchie Valens was only 17 years old.
Richardson was survived by his wife and daughter. Two months later, in April 1959, his son was born. JP Richardson was 28.Singer-songwriter Don McLean referred to Buddy's death in his song "American Pie". Since then, February 3 has been known by many as "the Day the Music Died".
