February 3rd is the 60th Anniversary of THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED - and it still matters. It's the day we lost three up-and-coming Rock & Roll stars - BUDDY HOLLY, RITCHIE VALENS and THE BIG BOPPER (J.P. Richardson). Dion was also on that tour and had the opportunity to use the plane to have time to get his laundry done, but didn't want to pay the $36.00. Historically, Waylon Jennings also had the chance to use the plane but allowed an ailing Valens to board it. Hear an actual newscast reporting the accident by clicking on the picture.
