Remembering Buddy the Day the Music Died

As the classically cool character, hot-rodder John Milner from George Lucas' American Graffiti proclaimed, "Turn it off! I don't like that surfin' shit! Rock and roll's been going downhill ever since Buddy Holly died."

It's been 51 years today since Buddy Holly was killed in a plane crash. This video and this quote of and link to Chris Oglesby's Virtual Lubbock piece on Buddy is my tribute today...and I'll add a video of Don McLean's American Pie. WARNING: Visiting Oglesby's site may deter any further productive activity for hours.
