I loved listening to Dion in the youtube. It is a painful watch when he recounts Buddy's love for his wife and that she was pregnant. He doesn't seem to think that the crash was, "the day the music died." Instead, he sees it as the birth of real rock and roll and enduring music. Thanks for that youtube. It was fascinating, very sad but fascinating,.
I want to acknowledge another legend, Buddy Holly. I thought Gary Busey did a superb job in the movie The Buddy Holly Story. I recently saw the traveling Broadway production of The Buddy Holly Story, and it was very good. As a kid I didn’t realize how he changed a lot rock music until I saw the movie and the play.
Sadly he died with the Big Bopper and Richie Valens.
