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.

Domestic Bliss - Okieriete Onaodowan x Reader

A/N: I’ve finally accomplished every day of the Write-A-Thon! (No one mention how long it took, I hate myself too) I’m really excited for this because Day 7: #WriteForOak2k17 was my doing and there is always room to appreciate my sunshine boy. By the way, there are a couple songs mentioned in this one. I’ll link them in the text. Enjoy!

“I think I’m sort of drunk.”

“You’re not drunk, Oak.”

“No, really. I think I am.”

“Prove it.”

“I actually like this shitty music.”

Hi there! My name’s Karina and I’ve always wanted to have a snail mail pen pal! I’m 19 and I’m currently a college student studying English. I loooooove reading works by John Steinbeck, Victor Villaseñor, etc. I’m into a lot of the more classic novels/Chicano literature. My music taste spans from Sam Cooke and Ritchie Valens (and many oldies) to Public Enemy, Tribe Called Quest, to The Beach Boys, and Spanish rock. I’m fluent and biliterate in English and Spanish and can talk about anything and everything that might interest you since I love learning what other people are into as well. Tell me your life story, your hobbies, schooling, jobs, etc. I love being able to communicate with others and would be open to exchanging more contact info like social media handles :). Another part about me is that I love swimming, hiking (lots of redwoods and beautiful trails where I live!), and water polo too. And I love studying Judaism since I’m interested in converting in the future! Talk to me :-)

Preferences: Preferably would like to communicate with anyone 15+; gender, sexuality, religion do not matter!

I think this is the only photo of Ritchie Valens and Donna Ludwig together. When I interviewed Del-Fi Records’ Bob Keane in 2000, he told me that while they knew each other at school, it wasn’t the romance dramatized in the 1987 film La Bamba.

In later years, Ludwig did confirm that her father certainly didn’t approve of her dating Ritchie, which the film got right.

What’s fascinating is that after Ritchie’s death, Donna recorded a novelty 45rpm, “Now That You’re Gone/Lost Without You,” which rarely gets a mention when anyone brings up the “dead teenager” song fad, with tunes like “Endless Sleep” and “Tell Laura I Love Her.”

Listen to both songs here.
