Kudos to VH1 for airing this. As it is known on February 3rd 1959 that
"The Day the Music Died." As the three deaths of three stars that were
up and coming nearly buried rock n roll music.
Plus the loss of innocence among the youth of that generation. We see
the families of the three fallen stars and the actors of Lou Diamond
Philips and Gary Busey who both played Valens and Holly respectively in
Plus three stars how their roots in music came. And how they influenced
music of Latin, Comedy, Rock-Country, etc.
How the Winter Dance Party came about despite freezing winter
temperatures in the Midwest and how the three did not want to take
another night on the bus and boarded the fateful flight that killed the
21-year old pilot, Roger Peterson often the forgotten victim.
Wished that they would make a movie on this as it would be interesting.
Due to Don McClean's "American Pie" hence the title, it helped new
generations remember the three.
They really did not die but live within our hearts and minds. How
Clearlake IA the site of the crash, and the Surf Ballroom where they
played their last ever concert. That has become a historic place for
rock and roll fans past, present, and even future.
Music Lives On through those three!
