Buddy Holly- Apartment Demos

Posted February 4, 2009 By admin

On this day in 1959, 22 year old Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens, aged 17, died in a crash shortly after take-off from Clear Lake, Iowa, the pilot of the single-engined Beechcraft Bonanza plane was also killed. Holly hired the plane after heating problems developed on his tourbus. All three were traveling to Fargo, North Dakota, for the next show on their Winter Dance Party Tour which Holly had set – covering 24 cities in three weeks, to make money after the break-up of his band, The Crickets, the year before.

1955-1959

There is a track in this compilation called “Ni***** Hatin’ Me” that is clearly not Buddy Holly and I have no idea why it was on here to begin with. I have removed the track for two reasons: It’s not Buddy Holly, and I have no desire to spread that kind of hateful song to anyone.

Buddy, Bopper & Ritchie

Posted February 4, 2008 By admin

49 years ago today, the world lost 3 of the most talented musicians it would ever see. Buddy Holly, JP “The Big Bopper” Richardson, and Ritchie Valens were killed when their airplane crashed in an Iowa cornfield in the early morning of February 3rd, 1959. Buddy Holly, aged 22 was well known for such hits as “Oh Boy“, “Peggy Sue” and “Maybe Baby“, was arguably the most infuental singer in the past 50 years, having an influence on artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan, to name just a few. The Big Bopper is best known for his song “Chantilly Lace“, was the oldest of the three, aged 28. He had a 4 year old son at the time of his death, Jay Richardson, who performs tribute concerts around the world in memory of his father. Ritchie Valens was the youngest of the three, aged only 17 at the time of his death, best known for his smash hit “La Bamba“, Valens is often referred to as a pioneer of Spanish rock and roll. Eddie Cochran recorded a tribute song to them titled “Three Stars“, depicting how heaven gained three new stars with the death of the three singers (he himself would die a little more than a year later at age 21). In 1971, the three would find a new audience when Don McLean came out with his tribute song “American Pie“, a song explaining his reaction the day he heard about the plane crash that killed Buddy, Bopper and Ritchie. The impact of their lives and deaths is still felt to this death, and leave everyone to wonder what could have been if they had lived.
