midwest rising

10

On February 3, 1959, rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson were killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, together with the pilot, Roger Peterson. The event later became known as “The Day the Music Died”, after singer-songwriter Don McLean so referred to it in his song “American Pie”.

At the time, Holly and his band, consisting of Waylon Jennings, Tommy Allsup, and Carl Bunch, were playing on the “Winter Dance Party” tour across the Midwest. Rising artists Valens and Richardson had joined the tour as well.

The long journeys between venues on board the cold, uncomfortable tour buses adversely affected the performers, with cases of flu and even frostbite. After stopping at Clear Lake to perform, and frustrated by such conditions, Holly fatefully decided to charter a plane to reach their next venue in Moorhead, Minnesota. Richardson, who had flu, swapped places with Jennings, taking the latter’s seat on the plane, while Allsup lost his seat to Valens on a coin toss.

Soon after take-off, late at night and in poor, wintry weather conditions, the pilot lost control of the light aircraft, a Beechcraft Bonanza, which subsequently crashed into a cornfield, leaving no survivors.

You got two black eyes from loving too hard

And a black car that matches your blackest soul

I wouldn’t change ya, oh oh

Wouldn’t ever try to make you leave, no

The neon coast was your sign 

And the Midwest wind with Pisces rising

Wouldn’t change ya, oh oh

Wouldn’t ever try to make you leave, no

Static palms melt your vibe, midnight whispering

The black magic of Mulholland Drive

Swimming pools under desert skies

Drinking white wine in the blushing light

Just another LA Devotee

Sunsets on the evil eye

Invisible to the Hollywood shrine

Always on the hunt for a little more time

Just another LA Devotee

You got bleached out eyes from the valley sand

And the black tar palms keep weeping your name

I couldn’t change ya, oh oh

Couldn’t ever try to make you see, no

The high rise lights read your rights

And a downtown storm with Aries rising

Couldn’t change ya, oh oh

Couldn’t ever try to make you see, no

Just another LA devotee

anonymous asked:

Ya know how in L.A. Devotee, he sings "And the Midwest wind with Pisces rising" in the first verse and "And a downtown storm with Aries rising" in the second? I just think it's cute cuz Brendon's an Aries and Sarah's a Pisces. You probably already realized this but I just think it's adorable. <3
