To kb7tbt Thank you for the reminder. These songs & others will be around forever.
TO THE PPL WHO Disagree:! I've listened & loved these types of music for 30 yrs . Songs & meanings apply then & now, look at all the music icons we have lost this year! So sad.
I enjoy music of all genres, ages, 1920- now. Rap, jazz, blues, classic. Country (old & new) , classic rock, hair bands .

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-songw r i t e r Don McLean so referred to it in his 1971 song American Pie.
