American Pie

3 Feb

Today is the anniversary of the day the music died.  Immortalized in the lyrics of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” 52 years ago today Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash.  If you only know Buddy Holly from the Weezer song, do yourself a favor and spend some time looking up these guys.  They were rock pioneers, and modern music was built on their shoulders.
