A long, long time ago...

Fifty years (and about four hours) ago a small plane carrying three rock n' roll icons crashed in Iowa. Buddy Holly, 22; Ritchie Valens, 17; and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson, 28 all died... along with the music (according to Don McLean).

I would tell you the story, but Wikipedia pretty much has it covered here.

is it just me or was the death certificate of holly totally fucked up.. i mean did they really have to describe all that detail? and was it really necessary to check out if his scrotum had been injured? lol
