February 3rd, 1959. Buddy Holly plane crash photos.

On this day, in 1959, rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Buddy Holly died in a plane crash along with fellow stars Ritchie Valens and JP ‘The Big Bopper’ Richardson. Their plane went near Clear Lake, Iowa, while the trio were in the middle of a three- week tour across the American Midwest. Watch the news here.

Buddy has left the building.



  1. Tra l'altro pare che… “Scampò al disastro il chitarrista di Holly, Tommy Allsup, che perse il posto sull'aereo, a favore di Valens, dopo il lancio di una monetina.” e se non sbaglio nel film “La Bamba” hanno anche inserito la scena.
